The Quadrant 1 Program:

Application process: Candidates are screened prior to acceptance into the training program. This is a highly selective process based on our evaluation of potential and level of interest in this career choice. While there are no formal selection criteria, having a base level of knowledge in finance, accounting, and economics is a prerequisite.

Formal classroom instruction: We will spend time with candidates teaching them the necessary skills to be a good analyst in the real world. Courses will be taught by senior industry professionals who will teach from their perspective as practitioners in the industry. The training will harness the candidate’s existing talents allowing for participants to fit seamlessly into an analyst role even without prior experience.

Work simulation:  All analysts upon completion of formal classroom instruction will assume coverage of a sector and produce research under strict supervision. Participants will produce output at a professional level that can be presented during interviews, providing tangible evidence of ability.

Presentation to hiring companies: Participants will be continuously evaluated throughout the program with feedback provided at every step of the way. Only participants who demonstrate a superior work ethic and competence as an investment analyst will be presented to hiring companies for consideration.

Quadrant 1 seeks to provide students, recent graduates, and early professionals an edge in securing the most coveted roles in finance. We offer comprehensive training and development from senior industry professionals covering roles in both the asset management and investment banking industries. At the end of the program, those who excel will be presented to companies looking to hire early professionals. Superior students can continue to receive ongoing training and mentorship until they are hired. 

Quadrant 1 training programs are offered at no cost to accepted candidates. The expectation is that participants will give 100% effort as they are evaluated at every step of the way for recommendation to hiring companies. Quadrant 1's training will assist participants in crossing the chasm that exists between the academic and the practical, hastening and enhancing the probability of making an impact on your new employer.
