IBD Strats are involved in marketing, structuring, pricing, and executing transactions for large corporations and institutions in the capital markets and M&A. We develop state-of-the-art quantitative and analytical methods for advising clients, and we build financing and risk-management solutions across products and industries.

IBD Strats are both investment bankers and innovators who create analytics and scalable technology platforms that will shape the future of investment banking and how we connect with clients. Direct participation in client interactions, deal executions, and other core commercial activities allows us to be in the optimal position to develop technical innovations that create economic leverage and differentiate the firm. We ensure maximum technically efficacy by encouraging fluency in the latest data science, data engineering, and software platforms through peer learning, MOOC-like curated learning, and online training resources.

Our team members are financial engineers, software engineers, and data scientists who share a passion for investment banking and the financial markets.


We are looking for an associate or vice president to join the Equity Capital Markets Strats team in New York. Equity Capital Markets originates and executes equity transactions in the public and private markets, including IPOs, follow-ons, and block trades.


The position involves solving business, data, and technology-related problems across ECM, using large and complex financial datasets and working in tandem with ECM marketers. The role requires a combination of the following competencies: an understanding of the financial markets and equity products, strong communication skills with non-technical clients and marketers, data and statistical analysis including machine learning, and software engineering.


As a global team, we focus on targeting deal opportunities, creating differentiated client materials, and executing transactions effectively. This requires both client-specific data analyses, as well as building tools, models, and infrastructure for broader use. A successful candidate in our New York office must act as a local liaison with our global team, and interact with the Americas Financing Group, Classic Banking, Securities Division, and other IBD Engineering teams. We expect them to be self-led, entrepreneurial, and capable of managing the delivery and adoption of key products.
