It’s the job of Baird’s award-winning Equity Research team to know more than 700 publicly traded U.S. companies frontward and backward – all in the pursuit of providing insight to institutional investors.
In total, more than 40 different industry teams cover publicly traded companies in six industry sectors:
- Consumer & Retail
- Financial & Real Estate
- Healthcare & Life Sciences
- Technology & Services
With analysts located across the U.S. – from New York to San Francisco – and clients all over the United States, Europe, Asia and beyond, our research truly has a worldwide appeal. As competitors have scaled back their research functions, Baird’s Equity Research has grown steadily.
Working on a small team of two or three individuals, you’ll cover 15 to 25 stocks, acting as a financial modeler and an expert at strategy and positioning. You’ll generate research for Baird clients, and meet with pension fund managers, mutual fund managers, hedge fund managers, and the senior leadership – CFOs and CEOs – of the companies you cover.
You’ll also be at the center of Baird’s major annual investor conferences, including Business Solutions and Health Care Conferences in New York and Growth Stock and Industrial Conferences in Chicago.
And you’ll work with the larger Baird team, supporting Research needs in Institutional Sales & Trading Investment Banking and Private Equity.
Baird hires high-performing individuals who participate in a very meaningful way. Our results prove the quality of the individuals we hire. Our Research team has been repeatedly recognized as “most trusted research” with top rankings in four of the five subcategories including our 11th year of #1 “Most Trusted.” (April 2014)1.
So, no matter if you’re a seasoned Equity Research professional or just starting out in your career – at Baird, you’ll have opportunities for development, to come in, learn the ropes and make your mark on a team with a strong track record of organic growth and a winning reputation.
