Our Internship Program runs for 10 weeks, from June to August and is open to students graduating in 2022 who are passionate about gaining an insight into a quantitative career.
CRCO Quantitative Strategies (QS) is our cross-asset modelling group. We work with Trading, Structuring and Sales to develop cutting edge pricing and risk management models.
The program is a combination of training modules and a quantitative project. The training modules are run by the QS group and based on a unique in-house training program. The training covers topics such as the mathematics of financial derivatives, an introduction to key financial markets and pricing methods, as well as practical training on core models. These sessions are followed by a practical assignment working within the QS group.
To apply for this program, we are looking for you to graduate in 2022 from your PhD or Master’s degree in a quantitative field such as Mathematics, Physics, Engineering, Computer Science, Statistics, Economics, Operations Research, and Quantitative Finance. You will need to be available for the full 10 weeks and be able to start full-time employment in 2022.
We look for highly advanced mathematical modelling skills, for example as shown through expertise in probability, statistics, differential equations, signal processing, or optimization. Programming experience and exposure to algorithms is desirable. Prior knowledge of finance is not required; however, you should have a genuine interest in financial markets.
Whatever your background, you’ll need to be:
- A leader who engenders dedication, assumes responsibility and mobilizes others
- A problem solver with excellent analytical skills
- A self-starter who achieves significant results
- A supportive and adaptable team member who can build long-lasting relationships
- An articulate communicator who also recognizes the importance of listening
- Principled and committed to the highest standards of ethical behaviour
