Full Text of JOE Listing:

Weiss Asset Management (WAM) is hiring summer investment analysts in Boston for summer 2023. Summer analysts will work directly with our investment team, which invests globally in equities, derivatives, and fixed income through fundamental and quantitative strategies. High-performing interns are typically offered full time positions upon graduation.

Why intern at WAM?

Time: June 12th, 2023 – August 18th, 2023 (10 weeks)
Our goal is to be the best option among hedge funds for ambitious and talented students looking to begin an investment career. We hire interns who we think will improve our investment team in the long run and invest in developing them accordingly. In recent years, interns and junior analysts have been at the forefront of research and strategy development in both quantitative and fundamental strategies and have contributed to all stages of the investment process. Each intern works directly with mentors on the investment team who are consistently available to provide guidance and feedback. We have the flexibility to tailor projects for each intern to allow him or her to demonstrate current skills and to develop new ones. Our investment team operates as one team rather than in siloes, which maximizes learning opportunities for interns and analysts.

About the Company:

For 30 years, Weiss Asset Management has developed proprietary value-based investment strategies designed to deliver high risk-adjusted returns to our investors, who include charitable foundations, pension plans, endowments, hospitals, government entities and private investors. We manage approximately $2.9 billion across hedge funds and institutional accounts. We work collaboratively to solve problems, and to identify undervalued assets through deep fundamental research, statistical analysis and an analytically rigorous approach to decision making. Above all else, we value integrity, uncompromising rationality, creativity and entrepreneurship, and continuous learning and improvement.

Our team of over 100 individuals is the engine of our success and we welcome truly exceptional candidates from all backgrounds.

WAM is a fit for you if:

You enjoy a collaborative environment, where decisions are made in diverse teams.
You work well in a flat structure and are comfortable voicing dissenting opinion.
You are driven to constantly learn, improve, and make rational decisions based in fact and data, and you welcome receiving feedback as well as sharing knowledge with others.
You prioritize acting ethically in all situations.

WAM is an equal opportunity employer. Women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.
