The Weiss Asset Management Group is hiring for interns to work in Boston and in San Francisco for summer 2021 with the investment team, which invests globally in equities, derivatives, and fixed income through fundamental and quantitative strategies. Successful candidates will pair strong quantitative abilities with an interest in qualitative analysis. At WAM, interns can expect to gain investment experience on par with that of first-year buy-side analysts and traders, and high-performing interns are typically offered full time positions upon graduation.

Highlights of the summer 2021 WAM internship:

  • Time: June 14th, 2021 – August 20th, 2021 (10 weeks)
  • We consider the internship to be the pipeline to our investment team: we hire people who we think will improve our returns in the long term, and we invest in developing them accordingly.
  • Each intern is assigned two advisors on the investment team, who are consistently available to provide guidance and feedback.
  • All interns complete our rigorous training program which covers pure arbitrage, value investing, and statistical strategies across multiple asset classes.
  • Interns complete real projects that directly impact our investment strategies and can expect to contribute at all stages of the investment process, including sourcing, researching, and modelling.
  • We have the flexibility to tailor projects for each intern to allow him or her to demonstrate current skills and to develop new ones. We also encourage interns to work with different groups throughout the fall.
  • We host a variety of events in and outside the office throughout the internship to allow interns to get to know senior investment staff, as well as the rest of the firm, at a personal level.


About FRA:

  • Fundamental Research Associates (FRA) is the Weiss Asset Management Group’s San Francisco member office and is looking to hire 1-2 interns with prior exposure to fundamental equity analysis. Our San Francisco office is smaller than our Boston office and interns will focus primarily on fundamental equity analysis.

About Our Asia Desk:

  • The Asia desk operates out of our Boston office during Asia market hours (overnight Boston time) and is looking to hire 1-2 interns with certain language skills. The team focuses on ECM and fundamental analysis.
