Asset Management Intern

Asset Management Intern

June 2021 - August 2021 Harrisburg, PA
“I enjoyed the culture at the firm: it doesn't matter if you would like to have a coffee chat with a Managing Director or a Senior Analyst because anyone at the firm is willing to talk with you about their career path and yours. Also, the company does not care how much finance and Excel modeling you know prior to the internship since you get trained thoroughly in the first few weeks. Finally, your managers assign you projects that make you learn a lot of public finance. Since the clients are primarily local governments, you manager could ask you to research the fixed income markets and determine how money market mutual fund managers should respond to changes in these markets. Maybe you are making presentations on portfolio strategies. Overall, you get to do projects that expand on what you have learned in the classroom.”
