Placement/ Duration
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 or have already graduated. It is designed to help you explore opportunities in Quantitative Finance by working with desk strategists to become an integral member of the team. Quantitative Finance Analyst and 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.

Training Program
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 and product and 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 will include motivated experienced industry leaders as well as graduates from top Universities that enjoy solving interesting problems in a collaborative environment.

Responsibilities
Strategists typically work very closely with desks across business lines and are commercially driven and revenue focussed.

The below four profiles describe the different categories of role available in Strats. In many cases an individual role will encompass aspects of each.

  1. Electronic Trading Strategists are financial and software engineers who design, implement, back-test, deploy and measure intelligent automated trading components and systematic trading strategies.  Working closely with other Strategists and trading desks, they rapidly provide new solutions and bring efficiencies and quantitative edge to existing business processes within a dynamic market-driven environment.
  2. Quant Developers Strategists use advanced technological and in some cases quantitative skills to productionize models, manage and maintain code libraries and rapidly develop innovative trader tools. They work closely with IT, other Strat functions and business to integrate new technologies to enhance pricing and risk calculations.
  3. Quant Modelling Strategists use applied probability and numerical analysis to create pricing models and hedging strategies that drive trading decisions. Working closely with trading desks, they enhance Morgan Stanley’s ability to trade innovative products and improve the management of the Firm’s trading risk.
  4. Quant Trading Strategists use statistical techniques and machine learning to develop and optimise trading strategies, tools, components and flows. Working closely with Electronic Trading Strategists and trading desks, they apply rigorous quantitative research and portfolio construction techniques to design systematic trading strategies and models.
