The senior research analyst will be mapping out how research should be done. This person will help develop a more organized process to take advantage of the investment professionals already on staff.

The research they do should be that of “practical” research that the client can actually use in day to day business activities, rather than research that is more “theory”. That being said, the research conducted will be closer to academic level research.

They will perform modeling and back testing.
