Description

Sustainable Growth Advisers (SGA), based in Stamford CT, is an investment manager with over $25 billion in assets under management and approximately 35 employees. The firm makes long-only, long-term investments in high-quality, profitable, secular growth companies (colloquially referred to as “free cash flow growth compounders”) in developed and emerging markets. We are fundamental investors who emphasize bottom-up research and in-depth understanding of companies and industries. Our portfolios are concentrated in 15-35 companies in which we have high conviction and see significant return potential based on the discounting of long-term growth in earnings and free cash flows.

We are seeking to hire an experienced research analyst to join our investment team. Our culture seeks self-starters who are independent, critical thinkers that can work collaboratively in an environment that emphasizes teamwork at all levels of the research and portfolio management process. Analysts that establish a track record of material contributions to client portfolio success over the long term can earn the opportunity to become an equity partner in our firm. In addition, high-performing analysts can also earn the opportunity to develop into portfolio management rolls over time.

Candidate qualifications include:

  • Superior academic achievement
  • Minimum of 3 years of investment research experience
  • Prior industry experience preferred
  • Significant experience in investment sourcing
  • Ability to think critically and objectively
  • Well organized and detail oriented
  • Ability to engage in both quantitative analysis and qualitative due diligence
  • Proficiency in financial statement analysis and financial model construction
  • Strong oral and written communication skills

Interested candidates should submit a resume, cover letter and a brief written stock pitch for a company that is generally consistent with SGA’s investment criteria to Tucker Brown (recruiting@sgadvisers.com).  Companies of interest have the following investment criteria:

  • A high degree of recurring revenues and predictability in their financial results through all phases of the business cycle (e.g., low-to-modest cyclicality)
  • Secular drivers that support superior top- and bottom-line growth over the long-term
  • Structural pricing power (e.g., price setters rather than commodity price-takers)
  • Strong free cash flow generation and low-to-modest financial leverage
  • Stable and deep management teams with strategic vision, operational excellence and demonstrable track records in creating shareholder wealth
