Quantitative investing is one of the fastest growing segments of the asset management industry, with new datasets and analysis toolkits helping to redraw boundaries every day. Bank of America’s strong focus in this space is evidenced from a fast-growing cross-asset investable indices franchise, as well as a cross-discipline client-centric research effort. We develop both tactical ideas and shape strategic thinking on derivatives instruments, risk factors, advances in portfolio construction, financial applications of modern data science and quantitatively driven systematic strategies across asset classes.
The Quantitative research summer or off-cycle intern within the cross-asset quant investment strategy team will learn about derivatives and help enhance research into and the development of quantitatively-driven systematic strategies.
Ideally the analyst will benefit from having prior experience of back-testing and/or portfolio construction in any asset class under real world constraints (e.g. liquidity criteria, transaction costs, rebalancing thresholds, etc.) and crucially be able to support and stress test empirical results against economic theory. Apart from strategy development and contributing to research published by the team, the role’s scope includes engaging and coordinating internally with global quant research teams, leveraging existing datasets and infrastructure, as well as interfacing with the cross-asset client solutions teams in Equities and FICC.

Your training and development is our top priority with extensive formal training offered at the start of the programme in addition to on the job support, educational speaker events and mentorship throughout.
