Business Unit Quantitative Finance
The Morgan Stanley Quantitative Finance Off-Cycle Internship Program in London runs for six months and is aimed at students who are required to complete a long-term internship as part of their studies or have already graduated. It is designed to help you explore opportunities within Quantitative Finance by working with desk strategists to evolve into an integral member of the team.
Quantitative Finance Associate 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.
You can expect to take on significant responsibility as soon as you start. You will work directly with desks at a senior level, applying your skills and subject-matter expertise, to help them make strategic decisions, develop quantitative edge, drive efficiencies and effect changes.
Training includes on-the-job training and one-on-one sessions to familiarize yourself with the Firm’s data resources, models, analytical tools, and AIML capability. The curriculum covers market and product knowledge as well as technical training. Throughout the program, you will be continually exposed to management, and you will benefit from networking opportunities with peers and colleagues. You will also be assigned a mentor to ease your transition into the corporate environment by offering career guidance, serving as a sounding board, and helping connect you to the broader Morgan Stanley network. Your co-workers are a diverse group who are motivated experienced industry leaders as well as graduates from top Universities that enjoy solving interesting problems in a collaborative environment.
Strategists typically work very closely with desks across business lines, are commercially driven and revenue focussed.
The below four profiles describe the different categories of roles available within Strats. In many cases an individual role will encompass aspects of each.
