I'm graduating in May 2017 and am looking for buy-side equity analyst firms that have strong training programs. So far I know of BlackRock who has a 2 year program and Wells Fargo who has a 1 year program.
The reason why I am looking for firms with training programs is because I will graduate with limited experience (Possibly member of investment fund at school for 2 semesters, hopefully passed CFA lvl 1, taking it Dec 2016, and personal investing) and I feel it is my best shot to get in the industry. Also the reason why I have limited experience is because I decided about a year ago to go into Buy-side equity research.
Does anyone know of companies with good programs, or do all companies generally have training programs for 1st year analysts?
