Investment analysts are an integral part of a project team and are given high levels of responsibility and broad exposure to the many aspects of international project and corporate finance.
IFC recruits investment analysts globally on two-year term contracts extendable to a maximum of four years. Upon completion of their contracts, investment analysts typically leave to pursue a graduate degree or additional work experience, while a select number are promoted directly to Investment Officer positions. Due to the high level of responsibility and the unique nature of their work, IFC’s investment analysts are accepted by leading graduate programs worldwide. In some cases, upon completion of their graduate degrees, analysts return to IFC as investment officers.

Application and Selection Process
We will place the profiles of short-listed candidates in a database accessible by all IFC hiring managers. Individual hiring managers will then contact selected candidates directly for interviews. IFC departments hire investment analysts on an as-needed basis throughout the year, so applicants may remain in the database for up to six months. Not all short-listed candidates will be contacted for an interview.
