State Street Associates (SSA) is looking for candidates for a London-based 13-month internship who can make an immediate contribution to our quantitative research team.
SSA is a unique partnership between industry and thought leaders in academic finance. We have a track record of helping hundreds of the world's largest institutional investors solve complex problems to enhance investment performance and manage risk. Our highly customised investment strategy analyses are based on advanced quantitative analytics and modelling tools, many based on original research generated by our staff and published in academic and practitioner journals. The educational background of our full-time staff varies widely; many of us hold advanced degrees in finance, economics, and in the sciences.
As an intern with our team, the candidate will work closely with our full-time staff to ensure timely production of publications for our global client base as well as assist in the completion of quantitative analyses on topics such as portfolio construction, currency hedging, and risk management for our clients. Depending on your skills and ability to climb the learning curve, you will have opportunities to contribute anywhere from collecting, analysing, and presenting economic and financial data all the way to presenting analysis and supporting new research and development initiatives to enhance our products and capabilities. The intern will gain experience that is valuable for a wide range of career paths in finance.
We offer a competitively paid internship. Candidates must be able to work on a full-time basis from July 2020 to August 2021. Preference will be given to candidates currently in their penultimate year of studies.
Candidates should have strong quantitative skills. Prior coursework or experience with financial models and/or quantitative techniques is a plus, as is experience with computer programming (preferably MATLAB, Excel VBA or Python). Strong verbal and written communication skills and the ability to work independently in a fast-paced environment are critical.
