Life at Chatham

Chatham seeks to create a vibrant culture in which Chathamites (i.e. our employees) develop and thrive both professionally and personally.

Regardless of role or tenure, Chatham is a place where people are valued, and we recognize this through providing opportunities for growth and a positive work environment.. From a thoughtful interview experience and intentional workspaces to company events and volunteer opportunities, Chathamites have many ways to engage.

Learn about the Foundations of our Vibrant Culture

Central to Chatham’s impact in the marketplace is the pre-eminent role of trust in everything we do. Whether with clients, colleagues, or in our industry as a whole, we strive to align ourselves with a multi-faceted understanding of trust. In addition to our focus on trust, Chathamites work to seize what we call “mental shelf space,” a concept that allows someone to take on increasing amounts of influence in a particular role or responsibility. Chathamites ultimately strive for “3rd stage performance,” which is the to key to increasing one’s influence here at Chatham.

Check out the videos below to learn more about these foundational Chatham concepts and how they have powered Chatham’s success and growing impact.

Joining our Team

We consider the interview process a tool for mutual discovery. It is just as important that a candidate have the opportunity to assess Chatham as vice versa. Our goal is to hire those who not only meet the job requirements but also who demonstrate that they can impact our business and thrive in our culture.

Our Training

Most new team members join us without deep capital markets knowledge. Chatham has a proven track record of developing expertise in-house. We balance company-wide structured training programs with on-the-job training.

All employees attend a four-day training which provides an overview of the company, and many employees continue into a more intensive training program tailored toward client-advisory roles. During this time, they are dedicated to full-time training, including classroom sessions, problem sets, and case studies. The content ranges from Chatham’s purposes and values, to bond math and derivative products, to consulting practices.

Our team members subscribe to a lifelong learner mindset, recognizing that no one ever knows all of the answers. This thirst for knowledge and desire to always be learning is what motivates individuals to master their domain of expertise. Watch our video about the Chatham Advisory Boot Camp experience.
