What to Expect

Interns will be expected to contribute from the very first day they arrive.  After their induction, interns are individually mentored by one of our experienced analysts for the duration of the programme.

The internship will provide a very broad and in depth understanding of the skills required to be an analyst from fundamental research, financial modelling, portfolio construction and valuation.  You will also be introduced to various divisions of the asset management business. You will be given a sector to analyse, and asked to present a buy/sell recommendation on a stock(s) to a panel of investors at the end of your internship. 

You will have opportunities to attend business, training, wellbeing and social events to allow you to understand our company and the asset management industry, alongside building your own network.

Hear more about the programme from one of our senior Research Analysts.


Our Team

Fundamental active equity research lies at the heart of our investment process.  Analysts have global sector responsibilities and are tasked with finding the best investment opportunities globally for our clients. Our analysts are career analysts and this is a dedicated and highly respected career path within the organisation.  

As a relatively small yet highly experienced team, our culture is entrepreneurial and collegiate. Analysts are given the intellectual freedom to research stocks in the way that is most suited for that stock / sector and everything is done to protect the analyst’s time to focus purely on investing.
