Internships in Finance in Europe

Here are a few examples of roles that our finance interns have taken on before:

  • Investment

    Investment banking is an increasingly diverse global industry with several major financial centers in Europe. As an intern, you’ll be responsible for assisting full-time Analysts and Associates. You will get an insight into the kind of work that goes into pitching and executing deals for clients, carrying out research, contributing to pitch proposals, and creating marketing documents.

  • Hedge Fund

    The world of hedge fund investments is incredibly varied, and your experience as an intern will depend a lot on what kind of fund you’re working for. Some interns may be responsible for idea generation, financial modeling, and due diligence, while others focus more on coding and developing statistical models. Either way, hedge fund interns will be well-prepared to secure a public-market role after they graduate.

  • Strategic Finance

    Strong analytical skills will always be in high demand in the financial sector. Strategic finance interns are often given the opportunity to work closely with senior managers from other teams, including sales and marketing, carrying out competitor analysis and risk analysis for new products as well as exploring potential new revenue streams.

  • Financial Technology (FinTech)

    FinTech is a new and fast-growing industry that utilizes technology to improve financial services. Interns in this sphere could be working on projects associated with AI, cybersecurity, or blockchain, to name just a few. Your primary role is likely to involve a lot of research, but you may also get the opportunity to look into start-ups and help pitch expansion strategies to them.
