Brownson, Rehmus, and Foxworth, Financial Analyst

Brownson, Rehmus & Foxworth, one of the largest independent wealth management organizations in the U.S., welcomes seniors, non-MBA master’s degree candidates, or recent Stanford graduates from any major to apply for very attractive Financial Analyst positions based in Menlo Park, starting in July 2018.  Please feel free to share this information with Stanford friends who might be interested.

 

Students may learn more by visiting us in-person at the Spring Career Fair on April 24th or online at www.brfadvisors.com.  We invite students to submit resumes and interview materials via Handshake.  


Brownson, Rehmus & Foxworth advises clients with over $10 billion of combined assets under management and has offices in Menlo Park, Chicago, New York and Atlanta.   We provide sophisticated investment advice and integrated comprehensive planning to high net worth families and related foundations.  We endeavor always to do the right thing by our clients.  Careful to minimize conflicts of interest with our clients, we neither sell products nor receive commissions. 

We believe the quality of our people meaningfully distinguishes us from many advisory firms.  We have deep Stanford ties.  Our 70 colleagues collectively hold 14 Stanford degrees: 1 PhD, 1 JD, 4 MBAs, 2 MS/MAs, and 6 BS/BAs.  Fred Rehmus, a GSB '61 graduate and BRF co-founder, received Stanford’s Gold Spike Award, endowed a Stanford humanities professorship, and donated the totem pole that stands in front of the Law School.

 

We welcome candidates who wish to join a close-knit West Coast team with a high degree of camaraderie, collaboration, mentorship, and professional standards.  We give substantial early responsibility and client contact to Financial Analysts.  We provide many opportunities for learning, enrichment, and career development.  We are committed to a healthy work-life balance, and our Financial Analysts work significantly fewer hours than analysts in comparable positions.  Nevertheless, compensation is highly competitive with top-tier banks and consulting firms.  Past Financial Analysts have a compelling track record of gaining admission to top-tier business schools.

 

We hope to hire truly great team players who have the potential to become partners in our organization in the future.  We seek colleagues who are highly ethical, empathetic, team-oriented, analytical, motivated, and intellectually curious.  Ideal candidates will possess great interpersonal skills, excellent judgment, broad problem-solving skills, and a professional, service-oriented demeanor.
