Our Firm is led by former PMs and designed to empower and develop great investors. Nearly a decade ago, we introduced our emerging manager program—now called Point72 LaunchPoint—to provide PMs with the time, support, and mentorship to launch their businesses. Today, more than half of our Long/Short PMs have gone through the program, it’s a track record of development no firm can match.

Who We're Looking For

Portfolio Managers in Point72 LaunchPoint share certain characteristics: a passion for the markets, deep domain expertise, and a desire to be an entrepreneurial investor while adhering to the highest ethical standards.

Promising candidates come with various experiences as equity investors, such as senior analysts or sector heads who have demonstrated success and are looking to transition to a PM role, multi-manager Associate PMs looking for a platform for a long-term career, or single-manager PMs who want to leverage our resources to scale their business. The program is also an opportunity for Point72’s top analyst candidates to make the jump to PM.

We act as a business incubator, tailored to enhance your individual strengths, fill any gaps in your process, and lay a strong foundation for your career here.

"From my first conversation with the team, the questions were: What kind of business do you want to run? What do we need to do to get you there? They have seen so many different styles and are really focused on developing and underwriting you as an investment professional."
