Yesterday I was reading an article about how one third of hedge funds might be going out of business in the not so distant future. I usually try to stay optimistic, so I avoid news sources that rely on hyperbole like this to draw attention to their articles, but what caught my eye was a statistic that was attributed to a Chicago-based company called Hedge Fund Research. The stat wasn’t all that interesting, but I instantly wondered whether the company ever hires new college grads. This is the “always looking” approach that I’ve been advocating over the past year, and which will play a major role in our soon to be released job search training course. Instead of being in the business of managing money like hedge funds are, Hedge Fund Research is all about collecting and disseminating information about hedge funds. They may have an ugly logo and a not so pretty website, but they’re on top of everything going on in the hedge fund industry.

Research Skills Pay

Hedge Fund Research has a number of product offerings – the “HFR Database, the industry’s most widely used commercial database of hedge fund performance,” the “HFR Industry Report, a comprehensive quarterly offering of the most current information on and analysis of the hedge fund industry,” and “the HFRX Indices and HFRI Monthly Indices – industry standard benchmarks of hedge fund performance.” The success of each of these offerings relies on Hedge Fund Research’s ability to collect more and better information than their competitors. The same can be said for you when it comes to your job search. If you’re a better researcher, not only will you be able to write a killer cover letter and rock the interviews, but you’ll also have developed a skill that you can market to a company like Hedge Fund Research. They’re currently hiring for two positions – Research Analyst and Sales Representative. The Research Analyst job is definitively entry level, while the Sales Representative job is probably best left to candidates who have experience selling in the investment management industry. If you’ve learned a lot about researching companies, why not translate those skills to a Research Analyst position with Hedge Fund Research? You can apply by sending a cover letter and resume to HFRINC_position@hfr.com. There isn’t a ton of information about Hedge Fund Research on their website, so use your skills to dig up some more info and please share what you find in the comments.
