This Summer, Jeff Michelson ’17 is working as a summer analyst at a hedge fund in New York City. Focusing on small cap, growth equities, Jeff is responsible for performing market research which is used in the funds investment decisions. In addition to building financial models, Jeff communicates with companies management teams in order to better understand the company. Upon completion of his research, Jeff provides a Portfolio Manager with an investment recommendation. Aside from his research responsibilities, Jeff has been particularly excited by the opportunity to attend various IPO roadshows.
Jeff, who is an economics major at Lafayette, attributes much of this summer’s success to the skills that he developed in Professor Bukics’ Financial Theory course. “All of the analytical skills emphasized in her course helped to make the transition as smooth as possible.”
