Placement and Duration
The Fixed Income Research Summer Analyst Program is a 10-week program consisting of one week of classroom training, followed by multiple rotations. Summer Analysts may rotate on various Fixed Income Research desks including Corporate Credit, Interest Rates, Emerging Markets, Foreign Exchange, Municipal Credit and Securitized Credit. Summer Analysts receive on-the-job training, benefit from working alongside experienced professionals on meaningful projects, and build their skillsets in a dynamic and evolving environment. In addition, the program features a Senior Management Speaker Series, desk teach-ins, networking events, community service, performance reviews, and a robust mentorship program.
