"Do you enjoy watching how company-specific news and current events impact the financial markets? Like solving puzzles and working competitively with a team to win? SIG's Buy Side Research Internship is an opportunity learn how those passions can lead to a successful career.
SIGSydney is on the lookout for bright, friendly students who are interested in the world around them to join our Buy Side Research Internship starting in December 2021.
SIG is one of the world's largest market makers, with a unique approach to trading, technology, and research. While this background puts us at the top of our game, what really makes us successful is our quantitative approach to decision making and the collaboration between our employees.
Buy Side Research Internship
As an intern on SIG's Buy Side Research team, you will be partnered with our senior Buy Side Research analysts and traders to assist in identifying trading opportunities in the equity and options markets. You will learn to perform in-depth company analysis around future catalyst events and provide real-time opinions on breaking news throughout the trading day. You will gain experience in the financial markets by tracking company news and events, assisting with valuation work, or other event-driven projects.
Our internship program introduces you to our unique approach to research through a combination of work on a trading desk and classroom study in options theory basics. Buy Side Research interns are placed on a sector-focused team and work directly on the trading floor.
At SIG, we believe that there is always something to learn and that ideas can come from anywhere, whether you are one of the founders or fresh out of university. Our focus on education has given us the reputation of having best-in-class development in the industry. As a Buy Side Research intern, you will have a personalised learning program and will attend finance classes with our trading interns, over the course of 9 weeks from December 2021 through to mid-February 2022.
