New York (AP) A New York University graduate has landed a job at S & P 500, the largest index of stocks in the United States, the company announced Tuesday.
M.B.-Yamaguchi, 28, will report to the chief executive officer of the S&s Group, the first woman to do so at the company, which has more than 8,300 employees in the U.S. and abroad.
“I am excited to join the S &s Group as an analyst, and I look forward to working with my team to continue to drive shareholder value through analysis and insights,” Yamaguchi said in a statement.
“The S&ams Group is a strong leader in the global information technology space, with a strong focus on value-based investing and strategic alliances with leading companies around the world.”
The investment bank is based in the Financial District of Manhattan and has offices in New York and Hong Kong.
It employs more than 1,000 people in the country and overseas.
“S&’s mission is to drive economic growth, create jobs and create opportunity for all people by investing in companies and communities that create value for shareholders,” said Andrew Fung, the firm’s president and chief operating officer.
Yamoguchi is uniquely qualified to build a powerful, global analytics team and drive S&ing’s transformation,” Fung added.
The company, headquartered in Tokyo, is seeking candidates for a new senior analyst position, according to a company statement.
The hiring comes as the stock market continues to stumble after a record-breaking week in which investors were disappointed by the Federal Reserve’s decision to raise interest rates.
