Meet our people

What to expect

During your ten weeks with us, expect to look deeply into industry trends and company financials. You’ll work closely with a Senior Analyst in one of our sector teams – building and maintaining financial models and databases to make sure the right information is provided to Sales and Trading colleagues and clients. As you progress, you’ll begin turning your analyses into reports and trade ideas, which you’ll present yourself. And right from the beginning, you’ll contribute by thinking like a trader or a portfolio manager.

How you’ll develop

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 well and meet our hiring criteria, you could have a full-time role waiting for you after graduation.

Who thrives here

Two or more years of related business experience is important in this role, as is an understanding of business modeling and financial statement analysis. Having a CFA qualification and relevant industry knowledge is even better. We also look for resourcefulness, teamwork skills, enthusiasm and an entrepreneurial spirit, often shown through prior work experience or participation in extracurricular activities.
