A day in the life at Cognolink

By: Aris, Senior Research Associate, NYU Alumnus 2012

Aris graduated from New York University in 2012 with a Bachelors degree in Economics. During his time at NYU, he interned at several financial services companies, including, Merrill Lynch. Upon graduating Aris was looking for a dynamic opportunity for recent graduates and decided to join Cognolink, which is a Primary Research firm. Aris has worked at Cognolink for two years and is now a Senior Research Associate.

Upon graduating from NYU, I was looking for a dynamic position that would offer me exposure to a variety of industries including Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) industrials, healthcare, defense and financial services. I was also looking for a company that had tremendous growth opportunities, a lean management structure and a collegial, cultural environment. Cognolink embodies and epitomizes all these qualities. I started with Cognolink two years ago when the New York office was still in its initial start-up phase.  Immediately after joining the Firm, I realized that this is a company that encourages its employees to actively contribute and have a direct impact on the business- both in client services and firm development. Throughout all levels of the organization employees are expected to be heavily engaged and grow the enterprise.

To give you a brief overview of Cognolink- our clients are typically buy-side companies, such as hedge funds and private equity firms, but we also work with management consultancies. As a Research Analyst, a typical day starts with a scan of overnight communication from our clients – we are always looking out for urgent project requests. A client will typically approach the Firm with a project when they are interested in learning more about a niche topic in a specific industry.

For example, a client may be interested in learning more about the railcar manufacturing industry – companies that build tank cars for crude by rail. First, it is important for the Research Analyst to execute background macro research on the topic in order to develop an understanding of why the client is looking at this particular sector.  After extensively reviewing research reports, news highlights, and company presentations, the Analyst discovers that there have been some high profile derailments over the last year; as a result, Canadian and US regulators have heavily focused on the growth of the industry and are considering introducing new tank car design regulations. This will in turn negatively impact a railcar manufacturer’s bottom line. Once the Analyst understands the context for a project, the major players in the space and the unique structure of the value chain, he/she will begin to source and recruit industry experts who are best suited to comment on the topic at hand. A pivotal responsibility for an Analyst is to speak with industry experts over the phone, investigate and gain a clear understanding of their background and experience, while ultimately determining if the expert can provide the right insight and knowledge that will assist the client. After a thorough review, the Analyst coordinates a consultation appointment between our client and the industry expert.

As Research Analyst at Cognolink, recent graduates will have many opportunities to speak with CEOs, CFOs and Board Executives across a variety of industries and time zones every day. This unique experience enables an Analyst to develop a holistic view of all industries across the globe. From Day 1 you will realize that Cognolink believes their employees are their strongest asset.   To learn more about the Research Analyst position visit: http://careers.cognolink.com/usa

Want to Learn more about Cognolink? They will be taking over the employer twitter account on October 9th! IF you’d like to meet them in person, they will be a panelist in the What’s Next Economics event on Sept 23rd. RSvp here!
