alongside an experienced senior analyst who will push you to think like a
trader or portfolio manager.
How you'll develop
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
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.
