I was wondering what does this role entail. It is under the Investments/Portfolio Mgmt umbrella which confuses me. The description does sound back office-ish. Is this FO or MO? The position is called Product Services Analyst for Securities Lending, and responsibility is for the oversight and succes...

I've recently received an offer to work at Duff and Phelps as a valuations analyst. I'm a finance major from a non-target that hopes to potentially work into an IBD role.

Had a informational interview with a boutique valuation firm with ~8-12 employees. Got the phone chat by simply cold emailing a mid-level worker (not MD but not associate) .
