Research Analyst, Internal Equities


We are looking for a research analyst to join the Cbus internal equities team, a team that currently manages $2.1B in funds. We are aiming to strengthen our research capability and would be keen to see applicants from beyond the traditional investing world, whether that be from journalism, science, law or another knowledge/research-based profession.

The position would provide you with an opportunity to contribute to investment actions through larger thematic pieces of research focused on areas that impact the companies in which we invest, and in doing so contribute to the superannuation returns of over 790,000 Australians.

We are a diverse team of eight with a long-term approach to investing in quality companies.  We are generalists and operate in such a way that all team members share ownership of the portfolio. Research is regularly performed in a collaborative fashion, and we encourage flexibility in our work practices and value innovation, mentorship and a sense of shared development.

At its core, this role requires someone with a highly inquisitive nature and a desire to discover how products, companies and industries work. A passion for investing would be an advantage however a demonstrated ability to distil complexity and uncertainty into digestible ideas and evidence backed theories is a must.

For us to be the right fit for you we also think that the following attributes should resonate: curiosity, optimism, and resilience.

Given our long term view of investing, our decision-making process is purposefully slow and considered, and the diversity of our team means all points of view are encouraged. We prioritise research that has a long shelf life.
The benefit of this approach is that it provides you with a supportive platform from which you are encouraged to investigate things that interest you, to travel as needed, and to bring your creativity to bear on your analysis.


If any of this appeals to you we would strongly encourage you to apply.

  • Please send your CV along with a short cover letter that discusses whether you think food delivery business models will succeed in the long term (aim for half a page).
