Analyst About

Analysts are considered the backbone of AMG. As an Analyst, your main role is to assist your Associate in managing your Sector's portfolio. You are also responsible for end-of-week market reports and ad-hoc market updates regarding events transpiring in your market sector. Analysts will help their Sector present two trade pitches and give one solo trade pitch to the AMG members throughout the semester. Analysts are required to attend all AMG and PSDA meetings. While the work is time-consuming, all Analysts are considered mentees and are guided by every member of the Penn State Asset Management Group.

To become an Analyst, PSDA members must go through a six-week education program covering the basics of commodities & derivatives and how they engage with the current market environment. After the six weeks, PSDA analysts are invited to interview for a spot as a PSAMG Analyst.
