Weiss Asset Management (WAM), a Boston based investment manager, is seeking undergraduate students to join its business operations teams upon graduation in winter or spring. No prior finance experience is required: this is an opportunity for curious and driven graduates to enter the industry and to get real-time feedback on ideas in a collaborative and intellectually challenging environment. Analysts will join a growing firm with opportunities in talent development, legal, and investment support (including research, trading, and operations).
Analysts at WAM can expect to develop technical skills, to build networks in the asset management industry, and to gain an understanding of hedge fund management. We consider this role to be a stepping stone for candidates looking to find their place in the industry, and top performers in this role have gone on to contribute across the organization at the highest level in trading, investment, and business operations.
