We need a senior experienced market/company research analyst, with 4 to 6 years hand-on market research experience, to (a) research travel, finance, and technology trends/companies and (b) present the information in an efficient and effective report.
We are looking for somebody who can dig until they find that one piece of information we need to know that others missed.
In this role, you will bring your intellectual curiosity, entrepreneurial mindset, and analytical ability to research initiatives that help answer important strategic questions around travel venture capital investments. Your research contributes to the evaluation of travel investments.
If you’re passionate about qualitative and quantitative research; if you possess a natural ability to visualize data and bring it to life through storytelling; if you geek out on travel industry – this opportunity is for you.
Research can be analyzing one company versus another, overall trends within a particular sector or country, a deep dive on one company and its product/service/company, reviewing reports, perusing other research reports, and more.
To research companies we have or will invest including deep diving on the company itself, their competitors, their earlier funding round and investments, who their prior investors are, various background research (LinkedIn profiles, social media), who are their direct and indirect competitors, and other valuable data points.
For example, a company seeking investment may suggest five companies in the 'vacation rental space,' but research shows there are 15 of them; you would see who they are, their market size, areas of focus, industry leading or anomaly data points and mainstream and lesser known facts.
For example, we need country information for an investment in Pakistan and we need to know what the latest developments are at a macro (country trends, growth opportunities, key sectors..) and micro level (how does government policy affect the travel industry, what are the growth drivers for the online travel agency space). Collectively these and other data points affect our current or upcoming investments.
Research data requires deep diving into company, media releases, trade associations, government organizations, tourism boards, company & industry news sources, and other quantitative and qualitative data sources.
4 to 7 years or more experience at recognized finance, travel industry, research or consulting company with demonstrated skills on market research.
Fluency with finding the latest financial information, management discussions, updates, and other information that gets overlooked in articles/media reports, is strongly preferred.
Must be able to thoroughly research the particular sector, competition, trends (real estate, financial, sales, etc.), any country regulations or restrictions regarding the company's product, and be determined to find that nugget of confidential information deep within internet files.
Ability to present data in a visually appealing, efficient and effective manner for CXO level external parties, Partners and for co-investors. Able to create a visually appealing, structured research reports with supporting charts, quotes, information, and verified data from qualified, relevant sources.
Must be available to work during GMT+2 friendly business hours.
