2020 Asset Management Summer Internship - London


Asset Management
Summer Internship

Jefferies, the largest independent full-service global investment banking firm headquartered in the U.S., has served companies and investors for over 55 years. Headquartered in New York, with offices in over 30 cities around the world, the firm provides clients with capital markets and financial advisory services, institutional brokerage and securities research, as well as wealth management. The firm provides research and execution services in equity, fixed income, and foreign exchange markets, as well as a full range of investment banking services including underwriting, mergers and acquisitions, restructuring and recapitalization, and other advisory services, with all businesses operating in the Americas, Europe and Asia.

This is an excellent opportunity to participate in a 10-week summer internship programme at Leucadia Investment Management Limited (LIML), a division of Leucadia National Corporation. LIML is an asset management company providing hedge fund investment opportunities in global equity event strategies. The internship will provide the correct candidate with a superb opportunity to experience the entire workings of a hedge fund, from investment processes through portfolio management, capital raising and operations. 


The successful candidate will gain exposure to a broader range of financial service business through our affiliation to Jefferies and direct, active involvement in hedge fund investing. The role will require candidates to analyze and present investment opportunities, as well as to perform qualitative and quantitative research from predominantly primary sources. In addition, fact checking, investigative research, field analysis and data mining will be core parts of the role. Candidates will be expected to interact with companies, analysts, journalists and other relevant sources of information. 


We are a small team and expect the role to be active and challenging, allowing successful candidates to make impactful investment cases towards the performance of the assets under management.

Who can apply?
