The Equities team is composed of research analysts, salespeople, sales-traders and traders who engage in a broad range of activities to bring complex financial transactions to the market. The team is engaged in sales, trading, financing, prime brokerage services and market-making in global equity and equity-related securities, options, futures, risk management and hedging products. Our activities cover both exchange-traded and over-the-counter traded securities, including American Depositary Receipts, restricted stocks, equity repurchases, block trade executions, program trading executions, equity derivatives and convertible securities.
Interns join either our fixed desk Research program, or the Rotational Sales, Trading and Structuring program, which offers three (3) three-week placements in the Cash, Prime Services and Derivatives business areas.
The Equity Research group differentiates itself by offering in-depth analytical frameworks, proprietary methodologies, and unique data sources that help clients meet their investment goals. Leveraging the bank’s global resources, the equity research teams analyze nearly 2,500 companies worldwide. Their research is further augmented by the macro-economic and strategy teams, which add thematic insights derived from a global perspective.
About the Program
Securities interns spend their first week in a comprehensive training program covering all aspects of the markets, geared toward acquiring the knowledge, terminology and technical skills required for the program. Interns may expect to review specific products and businesses in Fixed Income and Equities, participate in case studies/simulations, and receive training on tools such as Excel and Bloomberg.
Interns will meet with representatives from each desk and function (Research or Sales, Trading or Structuring) to begin the placement process, assisted by the campus recruiting team. Following a placement day in April, interns are allocated to dedicated desks, where they will spend nine weeks, allowing them to build significant knowledge in an area.
All interns are supported with a mentor to help structure their time at the bank and assist with networking opportunities. A dedicated desk coordinator will manage your daily workload, and provide feedback in formal reviews. This additional support is designed to present an inclusive view of the role and help qualify interns for consideration of a full-time role upon graduation. The summer internship is the bank’s core hiring channel for the full-time Analyst class.
To be eligible, you will have completed or be due to complete a Bachelors, Masters or PhD qualification (or equivalent) in any discipline.
All applicants must be in their penultimate year of study, be available for the full 10 weeks and be able to start full-time employment in July 2016.
