|Join our Investment Analysis team in London
Research analysts and traders are vital to the firm’s fundamental investing groups, and we’re looking for talented individuals with unique perspectives to join our inclusive and collegial team. Candidates may have a passion for investing, but they may also be newcomers to the field and simply interested in tackling complex, multifaceted problems that are ever-changing and reach far beyond the finance industry. The program is expected to run from June to August 2024.
What you’ll do day-to-day
Interns will research, analyze, and perform due diligence on specific companies or industries to help the team assess potential investments. Interns will be tasked with staying up to date on current news and trends, reading company reports, and analyzing data from a variety of sources. Because our approach sits at the intersection of finance and technology, our interns employ a number of technological platforms to analyze market data and ultimately make qualitative decisions based on these analyses

The D. E. Shaw group is trusted by investors across the world to manage their assets by seeking the optimal balance of risk and reward. While we’re known as a pioneer in quantitative investing, we also have considerable expertise in areas that involve fundamental analysis or portfolio manager discretion. We use a combination of quantitative and qualitative tools to uncover independent, hard-to-find sources of return across global public and private markets.
Founded in 1988 over a small bookstore in downtown New York City, the D. E. Shaw group began with six employees and $28 million in capital and quickly became a pioneer in computational finance. In the early days of exposed pipes and extension cords, tripping on a cable could take out our whole trading system. Today, the firm has more than 2,000 people around the globe and an institutional-grade (and trip-proof) infrastructure, but we still value creativity, entrepreneurship, and the spirit of discovery.
