Ep. 70 The Long-Short | How to survive and thrive as a buy-side analyst

Published: 25 October 2023

The Long-Short is a podcast by the Alternative Investment Management Association, focusing on the very latest insights on the alternative investment industry.

Each episode will examine topical areas of interest from across the alternative investment universe with news, views and analysis delivered by AIMA’s global team, as well as a host of industry experts.

New analysts at hedge funds often have to learn on the job, and fast! One former portfolio manager who went through it the hard way is lowering the ladder to those behind him through an intensive hedge fund boot camp that teaches the fundamental survival skills needed to make it as a buy-side analyst. We hear from Brett Caughran, who brings experience from his time at major hedge funds including Two Sigma, Citadel, and Schonfeld, to his new training firm Fundamental Edge, on how he’s bringing much-needed structure to the buy-side training process.
