We’re here to help you enhance your capabilities so you can thrive as a world class financial analyst (i.e., as an Alpha Analyst or “αAnalyst”). You may be a Wall Street equity analyst, a management consultant, a public accountant, or even a hedge fund analyst seeking to beat the market. If you are still a student preparing to “break in” to your chosen financial profession we can help you prepare to land your dream job and perform like a rock star when you get there.
In today’s dynamic work environment people are frequently switching careers every few years, so what you do today could be very different from what you will be doing a few years from now. However, if you dedicate yourself to learning the content on this site, your enhanced analytical capabilities will transfer with you regardless of what career opportunities may unfold for you in the future. I encourage you to break away from the pack and strive to be an αAnalyst.
I enjoy taking complex concepts and making them simple and easy to understand, which is what led me to want to create this site. After college I worked in public accounting for a Big 4 firm for a few years, and then I spent several years working in Internal Audit. Later I joined the counterparty credit risk group, where I reviewed the financial strength of large banks, broker/dealers, and insurers.
I hope you find the content we create and share to be useful. If there is any particular content you would like to see on the site please reach out and let us know.
To your success,
Matt McClure, CFA, CPA, FRM, CIA
