The UOIG’s structure consists of a basic three-tiered hierarchy. The top level is occupied by the President. The second tier consists of the Director of Human Resources, Director of Research and the three portfolio managers. The sector leaders make up the third tier, and cover the Healthcare, Financial, IME, Consumer Goods, and TMT sectors. Senior and Junior Analysts make up the fourth tier. Although structure is necessary for the success of the UOIG, the group’s communication and information flows are very open and flexible from top to bottom. As one of the goals of the UOIG is to enhance the learning of all its members, the management team works directly with the analysts, and knowledge is shared both ways. Questions, observations, and suggestions provide the fuel for achievement, and participation from all positions is critical to the group’s success.
