About the Position
The quantitative trading internship is a fast-paced, immersive experience. Over the course of the summer, you will be mentored by some of our experienced traders who will teach you about identifying, analyzing, and executing trading strategies, constructing quantitative models, conducting statistical analysis, building trading intuition, and more. In addition to 1-on-1 work with your mentors, you will attend internal classes on various topics and participate in mock trading sessions alongside your co-interns, where we can teach you the broader fundamentals of finance and trading (and how your quantitative problem-solving skills fit in). The work can be challenging and intense, but we want our employees, interns included, to have a healthy work-life balance. Interns work approximately 9-hour days, Monday through Friday. We encourage our interns to enjoy their weekends in Hong Kong and to take advantage of what the city has to offer.
All of our offices follow a slightly different internship schedule, but no matter where you’re based we will always do our best to work around your academic commitments.
Typically our summer internships run for 10-12 weeks between May and September. London and Hong Kong also have off-cycle and Australasia summer internship programs that run between November and April. These schedules are often flexible, so if this timing isn’t exactly what you had in mind, don’t worry; we can work out the details later.
We are looking for people who have a strong quantitative mind and enjoy working collaboratively to solve challenging problems in a practical setting. Prior knowledge of finance or economics is not expected or required. Experience with particular programming languages is also not required, although generally being comfortable programming in your language of choice is a plus.
Depending on the development of COVID-19, we're hoping to host our 2021 internships in the Hong Kong office if public health conditions allow.
