Forex (FX) is where currencies are traded. It’s the largest market in the world, with average traded values that can be trillions of dollars a day. As the firm’s FX experts, we provide major investors and corporations with our view on these markets as well as our official currency forecasts. It makes for a hugely exciting and rewarding place to begin your research career.


What to expect

Over the course of the summer, you’ll be involved in both macroeconomic and quantitative research that has a real impact on our business. In the process, you’ll gain a really clear understanding of the FX market – its structure and products, as well as our in-house analytical models. You’ll work alongside an experienced senior analyst who will push you to think like a trader or 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 very well and meet our hiring criteria, you could have a full-time role waiting for you after graduation.

Who thrives here

As a minimum, you’ll need to be a Masters or PhD student in a discipline such as Economics, Finance or Public Policy. You’ll need experience with empirical methods and econometrics, as well as tools such as Matlab, Eviews or R. However, what will really set you apart is your boundless energy and insatiable curiosity about how the world’s financial markets work.
