Investment Analyst Program

We are currently seeking expressions of interest for Investment Analyst positions that are expected to become available over the next 3-6 months in Washington and in our regional offices, including in Asia (Beijing, Singapore, Delhi and Mumbai), EMENA (Istanbul and Moscow) and Africa (Dakar, Nairobi and Johannesburg).  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as they are submitted.

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.
