The Trust’s Investment Department manages a diversified portfolio of $9 billion in investment assets, and we are seeking an Investment Analyst to join our team.   Our Investment Analyst Rotation Program provides the opportunity to work with all of our investment groups.

Analysts may also perform ad-hoc market and industry research. Investment Analysts will also energetically monitor our current portfolio of funds.
