WALL STREET TRAINING
WALL STREET TRAINING IS BOTH FUNDAMENTAL AND TECHNICAL ANALYSIS
Wall Street careers seem as varied as the kinds of investment instrument that have been conjured by the finance industry. When it comes to training for a job or promotion on Wall Street, or anywhere in the finance industry for that matter, the appearance of complication is somewhat misleading. The fact of the matter is, the traditional Wall Street job is that of the financial analyst, whether by this title or another. Investment bankers, hedge fund managers, quantitative risk analysts (and other
quants), research analysts, money managers (managers of private wealth) and good old stockbrokers all have in common the fact that a significant portion of their work is the valuation of securities or the underlying businesses using financial analysis.
Certainly there are different kinds of financial analysis, the division between technical analysis and fundamental analysis being the most well known. Technical analysis, in a nut shell, is the analysis of market data using statistical or mathematical algorithms to identify trends that will help predict future movements of securities. Unlike technical analysis, fundamental analysis attempts valuation of a security by assessing the underlying business’s financial health, the viability of its business model and the effectiveness of its management, combining both qualitative and quantitative assessment of the actual business.
The majority of the financial analysis conducted by finance professionals has its roots in fundamental analysis. While not all practitioners of financial analysis who approach valuation by trying to make sense of the financial state of a business, along with the promise of its product line and business practices, will say they are doing fundamental analysis, in essence this is precisely what they are doing. The stockbroker who searches for an industry leading corporation with strong earnings and solid assets as an investment recommendation to a client with only moderate risk tolerance is doing simple fundamental analysis. In assessing a business as a potential initial public offering (IPO), the senior partner in a venture capital firm, who has his team of seasoned financial analysts pour over the business model and construct an excruciatingly detailed financial model of the company, is also doing fundamental analysis. The point here is that training in the valuation methods of fundamental analysis is central to the success of a majority of Wall Street professionals.
WHERE CAN I OBTAIN WALL STREET TRAINING?
The techniques of fundamental analysis are best learned through a combination of instruction and practice. The Investment Banking Institute’s course emphasizes financial modeling and valuation, with an emphasis on how to decide which of the many valuation techniques is most appropriate for a given situation and how to construct a financial model that will enable the financial analyst to predict future value given various salient hypothetical scenarios. The Investment Banking Bootcamp is meant to provide ample training for an investment banking career, which requires some of the most sophisticated financial modeling skills and careful fundamental analysis of any Wall Street profession. As a result, the investment banking training course offers uniquely rigorous exposure and training for those interested in a role as a financial analyst in other types of investment firm, whether it be in a hedge fund or in private wealth management. In sum, the Investment Banking Bootcamp provides excellent Wall Street training.
