Basically title - after a summer at a top MM, anecdotally, what type of places have you seen people go? Do a lot of people recruit FT for a SM or potentially MFPE? Or do people mainly stay on FT and climb the ladder? Any insights are helpful, cheers.

I received an invite to complete a questionnaire. I'm wondering if this is a standard part of the application process for all applicants. Have any other applicants here received a similar invitation?

Hi everyone, I have an upcoming model test with Point72. I actually have some information on the test from a few years ago from a buddy but I'm really curious if the test has been changed at all since then or if it is similar to the old test (so that I know what to spend time practicing). I would...

I'm a student at a target with exploding offers at Citadel for their CAP summer associate program and at a top EB for summer 2024. I was initially interested in long-term value investing, and wanted to exit from EB to PE, then to HF, but this program seems interesting. It was surprisingly easy to...

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with them for an experienced analyst hire? Did the case study/debrief, met with 2 other PMs and the other analysts, and met with someone from management.

As someone who is pursuing IB but was always interested in the possibility founds on the buy-side, mainly PE and HF, was curious if the monkeys in the HF could give me some insight into Point72 from an insider's POV.

Is this a section to allow us to explain a little bit more about ourselves and provide a few of our prouder accomplishments, or is this literally there for logistics? It says "This is not a required field. If there are particular details, such as logistical considerations or competing offer...

Anyone have any examples of firm-wide MMF analyst base scales getting raised across any large pod shops this year (because of inflation)? I'm talking about firm-wide level base bumps for experienced senior analysts, not 1-off "generous" PMs. The big MMFs have somehow maintained their similar...

I've been looking at P72 employment data on LinkedIn and noticed that many analysts decide to leave after only 1-2 years working at the firm. Not sure if that's normal in the HF industry or not, but does anyone know why this is the case whether it is an industry-wide problem or specific to P72? Am I...

Common techniques to contain portfolio volatility and DDs at MM platforms (Millennium/Citadel/P72 or similar)
Would someone with actual work experience at a MM platform (Millennium/Citadel/P72/BAM or similar) be kind enough to offer a high-level overview of common techniques that are used to contain (a) portfolio volatility and (b) draw downs, to the platform's required parameters for a pod? I am thinking...

Does anyone know what the typical passing scores are for the Wonderlic for the big multi manager hedge funds? I know online it says 29 is average for an investment analyst but I would have to think the big funds would have high strict cut offs. For example, would somewhere around a 40 be considered...

Hello - just wondering if anyone knows the difference between point72 (formerly SAC) vs Everpoint Asset Management. According to Google, they seem to be all under the same umbrella (Cohen's family office) though there must be some separation between what each of them do. Does anyone know and can...

Point72 offers a program known as the Point72 academy (https://www.point72.com/careers/campus-point72-ac…). It is essentially a 15-month crash course for college graduates to the buy side. I was wondering if anyone is aware of any similar entry level programs that the big asset managers/HFs offer?
