2020 Quant Summer Institute (QSI) Program (London)

Our Internship Program runs for 10 weeks, from June to August and is open to PhD students completing their studies in 2020/2021 (or students in their penultimate year of study for a Masters in a quantitative field) who are passionate about gaining an insight into a quantitative career.

Quantitative Strategies (QS) is our cross-asset modelling group. We work with Trading, Structuring and Sales to develop cutting edge pricing and risk management models.

The program is a combination of training modules and a quantitative project. The training modules are run by the QS group and based on a unique in-house training program. The training covers topics such as the mathematics of financial derivatives, an introduction to key financial markets and pricing methods, as well as practical training on core models. These sessions are followed by a practical assignment working within the QS group.

You Offer

You’ll need to be completing your PhD or in your penultimate year of study for a Masters in a quantitative field such as Mathematics, Physics, Engineering, Computer Science, Statistics, Economics, Operations Research, and Quantitative Finance.

You must be able to demonstrate highly advanced mathematical modelling skills, for example as shown through expertise in probability, statistics, differential equations, signal processing, or optimization. Programming experience and exposure to algorithms is desirable. Prior knowledge of finance is not required; however, you should have a genuine interest in financial markets.
While our employees have a wide range of experiences and interests, they share an intellectual curiosity, a desire to achieve and a pattern of excellence and achievement.

Whatever your background, you’ll need to be:

  • Client-focused and committed to developing creative solutions
  • A leader who naturally attracts followers
  • A critical thinker with excellent problem-solving skills
  • A self-starter who is able to envision long-term goals and ways to attain them
  • A collaborative team member who builds excellent relationships
  • An articulate communicator who also recognizes the importance of listening
  • Analytical and logical, with raw intellectual ability
  • edit Suisse is an equal opportunity employer. Welcoming diversity gives us a competitive advantage in the global marketplace and drives our success.
