The Morgan Stanley Quantitative Finance Off-Cycle Internship Program in London runs for three to six months and is aimed at students who are required to complete a long-term internship as part of their studies. It is designed to help you explore opportunities in Quantitative Finance by working with desk strategists to become an integral member of the team. Strategists are placed in a strategists (‘strats’) team related to their specialism, but will typically be partnered with particular business lines or desks to work on specific projects or models.
The Program provides work across a range of product and sector desks. You will apply your analytical skills to help the team make strategic decisions involving capital raising, research or trading issues. Quantitative Finance Off-Cycle Interns are placed directly on a desk within the Quantitative Finance division with opportunities on the Fixed Income and Equities desks.
Training includes on-the-job training and one-on-one sessions to familiarize you with the Firm's data resources and analytical tools. The curriculum covers market knowledge as well as product and technical training. Strategists are often in a dual role of author and users of the software so they have an opportunity to solve open business problems.
