Pursuing more diversity of thought

It’s essential to our success for our people to come from diverse backgrounds that allow them to bring unique perspectives to every part of our business.

An equal playing field

At Point72, merit drives your success. If you work hard and contribute great ideas, you’ll succeed here.

How we achieve greater diversity

We can only achieve our greatest success as a company by attracting the world’s best talent. Diverse opinions — variant views — are our lifeblood and we won’t have those different perspectives without recruiting a diverse pool of talent, including people that have been historically underrepresented in the finance industry. We run on merit, so we won’t ever stop looking to attract the best and brightest from any background.

Through our Point72 Future of Finance Symposia for Women and for Black, Latinx, and Native American Students we’re looking to lay the  foundation for the next generation of great investors.

Point72 Future of Finance Symposia

We’re offering women and Black, Latinx, and Native American undergrads the opportunity to join us for a daylong investing career forum.

See yourself in a finance career

We’re inviting women and Black, Latinx, and Native American undergrads to apply for our Point72 Future of Finance Symposia in our offices. You will learn how Point72 Academy is finding, training, and equipping the next generation of great investors for success in our business.

If you’re selected, we will provide you with travel and lodging to our Stamford, CT headquarters and a $2,500 grant towards your educational expenses.

Point72 partners with BLK Capital

This year we were the Founding Sponsor and host of BLK Capital Management’s Inaugural Stock Pitch Competition. BLK is a wholly black-owned and student-run hedge fund, which strives to recruit the top talent from students across participating schools and prepare them for a career in the financial services industry.

Diversity through development

Last year we became a leading sponsor of the P3 program to help our female Analysts develop the skills and networks they need to accelerate their careers in investment management. This 12-month program run by Parity Partners includes a monthly speaker, regular discussions with a small group of peers, and access to industry events.

2017 Point72 Scholarship for Women

The Academy has emerged in the past three years as the major means by which we appeal to a more diverse population of aspiring investors. Supported by the 2017 Point72 Scholarship for Women – women now account for a larger share of our Academy Full Time and Summer Programs than ever, even as the program itself has grown.

Progress starts with education

We’re proud to announce that Point72 has donated $60,000 to the Asian University for Women’s #ProgressStartswithEducation campaign. This donation will fully underwrite the cost of a four-year scholarship for one woman to attend AUW. We’ll also be offering an internship in our Hong Kong office for at least one student from AUW this summer.

We’re proud to have supported these organizations to help them achieve their inspiring missions.
