Program At A Glance
The Ewing Morris Fellowship is a program designed to provide aspiring investment professionals with an opportunity to gain experience and skills that should help them break into the industry.
A successful candidate can expect to work closely with members of our investment team on a wide range of projects with a particular focus on publicly listed businesses.
Please Begin By Completing The Application and Providing The Listed Documents.
We designed our program with the intent of providing you with the highest return on your time. This means that the tasks you are expected to perform will not only benefit Ewing Morris; they will also help you to develop as an investment professional. While throwing a student in the deep end might work in some instances, we do not believe this approach is reliable in developing thoughtful investment professionals. Instead, we provide participants with a recipe to produce high quality work.
Participants can expect clear and timely feedback on the quality of the work they produce. Participants will also have the personal satisfaction of seeing the fruits of their labor; for example, participating in management meetings with companies on which the Fellow has completed the background investment research. Additionally, each week, a participant can expect to spend dedicated one-on-one time with portfolio managers to discuss any topics in which they are interested.
Become A Part Of The Community
We make a concerted effort to build a community where participants can interact with, and learn from, former EM Fellows.
Four months, starting every January, May and September. We have designed this to be a rotating program, meaning, as a general rule, we do not offer an opportunity for multiple terms.
Expected Workload: The 4-month fellowship requires the commitment of a full-time position. As it is with any venture in your life, you will get out of the role what you put into it. The Ewing Morris teams commits to enabling the best you have to offer.
This is a Paid Internship (modest)
Basic Accounting Knowledge: No need to major in accounting, just go through and understand a basic accounting textbook or explore a number of online resources available on the topic (Khan Academy has a collection of videos on the topic that will be helpful).
Intermediate Excel Proficiency: No need to take an expensive modeling course; there are many free resources covering the use of Excel. Knowledge of VBA is not a requirement. When it comes to models, we spend 95% of the time thinking about inputs and only 5% on how our model looks.
Strong written and oral communication skills.
Prior experience with Bloomberg or Capital IQ is an asset, but not a requirement.
Although the time it takes to fill a position does vary, we aim to have the position filled at least four months in advance and encourage applicants to apply early.
Given the volume of applications, we simply cannot guarantee a response to every application, and we apologize if we do not get back to you.
