Strategic Advisor, Capital Markets

As a Strategic Advisor within our Capital Markets practice, the candidate will support the team's research efforts, focusing on front-office market structure, data, analytics, and technology research.

The ideal candidate brings solid industry expertise (5 or more years of experience ideally at a financial institution, industry association, trade publication, management consulting firm, or leading technology vendor), a background in front-office workflows (including trading technology and market structure), and a working knowledge of data sharing and flows, analytics, and trends. The candidate should be aware of the challenges present in pre-trade, real-time, and post-trade data and analytics requirements; be familiar with market participants and solutions providers in the space; understand regulations present and future; and have a working knowledge of the technology being used by the sell-side and/or buy-side and exchanges.

Additionally, we expect the candidate to have proven written and oral communication skills, an ability to formulate original analyses and actionable recommendations, and proven quantitative analysis skills. Research or strategic development experience is also highly desirable.

Strategic Advisors must be fluent in English (fluency in another language, such as Chinese, Japanese, French, German, or Spanish, is always welcome). A bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university is required; a candidate who holds a master's degree is preferred.

Strategic Advisors are expected to excel in the following areas:

  • Be highly self-motivated, able to independently carry out primary research (interview-based rather than desk research), and have experience producing conceptual diagrams and presenting statistical information in a logical format.
  • Have written and oral communication skills—writing is a large part of the job, so being able to produce balanced content in a cohesive and comprehensive manner is important.
  • Have strong time management skills, as advisors are always working on more than one project at a given time.
  • Have enthusiasm for developing existing and new areas of research as well as responding to market developments that impact the buy-side community and its technology requirements.
