The Impact– Equity Research stream program is a 12-month new graduate rotational program that is a stepping-stone to becoming an Associate in our Equity Research business. Scotiabank’s Research Associates enjoy a stimulating and demanding work environment. They also have an opportunity to work for a top-ranked Equity Research franchise. Research Associates work closely with a seasoned Research Analyst to develop financial forecasts and publish research publications that allow our clients to make informed investment decisions. For individuals who are passionate about capital markets and research, this program is designed to develop technical, analytical, and interpersonal skills in the Research function. The program consists of the following components:
Rotations: During the program, Research Associates have an opportunity to develop relationships with the equity sales desk and institutional and corporate clients, sector expertise, strong financial modelling and valuation skills, and an understanding of Capital Markets. We cover a broad range of industry sectors; participants have an opportunity to rotate through four different sector teams. Through these assignments, participants gain exposure to different valuation methodologies and management styles as well as key drivers within each sector.
Classroom: The Capital Ideas Program is designed to orient participants to our culture, people, products and services and to provide the soft and technical skills, and contacts critical for success. From day one, Associates work with their peers to expand their global network. Team projects, individual study and social activities supplement classroom discussions. This component is dependent on the candidate’s start date.
Feedback: We believe that ongoing feedback is a critical component to any learning process. Throughout the program, Associates are provided with ongoing feedback from their Mentor and Supervisor.
Placement: The aim of the program is to place participants within an Equity Research sector team towards the end of the final rotation.
