Job Description:

Truist Securities’ Corporate and Investment Banking Program begins with up to seven weeks of classroom instruction that consists of an introduction to capital markets, products and services, accounting, corporate finance, systems and financial modeling training designed to give Analysts all the tools they will need to be successful. After the classroom training, Analysts will join a business group and play a meaningful role in supporting senior Sales, Trading & Research professionals.

Assignments will be with one of our Sales, Trading & Research groups listed below, with the opportunity to interact with other groups and disciplines throughout the investment bank. Within each group, Analysts play a meaningful role in supporting internal and external clients.

Equity Research

Equity Research is recommended for individuals with an interest in capital markets. Analysts will be embedded on a team(s) that covers a specific sector, under the watch of a senior research analyst (VP, Director or MD). Each team covers 10-25 stocks and is responsible for publishing research reports and providing “bespoke” content that is utilized by institutional investors during their investment process. Additionally, published material is widely disseminated among the corporate community and industry contacts. The Analyst will support their assigned team during the production and writing of research reports, which include investment recommendations (BUY, SELL or HOLD); this may include: data analysis, building/maintaining financial models, and participation in conference calls with company management teams or institutional clients.

  • Secondary Loan Trading Analyst

Analysts in Fixed Income Research play a meaningful role in supporting senior investment banking professionals. Analysts generate fixed income investment portfolio presentations for depository, municipality and money manager customers. Analysts will also gain exposure to regulatory and accounting issues related to depositories and build a more robust understanding of financial institutions’ balance sheets, focusing on an asset-liability management perspective.
