Our inaugural bootcamp was held in Michaelmas 2018. 30 highly interested and committed candidates were given a six-week long crash course in foundational modelling and financial analysis by experienced portfolio managers within the fund, in conjunction with our research partners. This culminated in a team case competition. 15 of the initial 30 bootcamp participants graduated into analyst positions within the fund.
Applications for the bootcamp will reopen in Michaelmas 2019.
