What to expect

As a summer associate, you’ll spend 10 weeks working closely with a senior analyst. It’s a fantastic chance to embed yourself in the firm and see how it all works. In addition to building valuable experience, you’ll contribute your own ideas and have a genuine impact on our business.

While you’re with us, you can expect to develop a sound knowledge of US monetary policy. You’ll also see how domestic macro-economic developments underpin movements in the markets. You might work on custom projects to enhance our understanding of particular areas, such as US GDP, inflation and developments in the labor markets. You could also conduct empirical studies and help to publish research for our clients.

Throughout the summer, our support will help you deliver your best work. In our team-driven environment, you’ll find that mentoring happens naturally and friendships are easy to form. Senior and junior mentors will guide your progress, and networking and social events will provide a fully rounded experience. Halfway through, you’ll get constructive feedback on your performance. By the time the summer’s over, you’ll walk away with a solid understanding of our business, our culture and your potential place within it. If you perform very well and meet our hiring criteria, you could have a full-time role waiting for you after graduation.

What to expect

We’re looking for Masters or PhD students in technical disciplines, such as Economics, Finance or Econometrics. Whatever your specific background, you’ll have a sound understanding of statistics, linear algebra and time series analysis. You must also be able to clearly formulate and conduct empirical studies. You should have excellent written and verbal presentation skills and have the ability to work independently or in a team. Finally, you’ll be comfortable working in a programming environment, such as Matlab, Eviews and Excel.
