Opportunity Areas

Our internship opportunities tend to be focused on our Research, Investment and Client Teams, with students favouring either a quantitative or a fundamental internship based on their studies and interests. Please look below to find out more about the departments we typically offer internships in.

Quantitative Research

The Quantitative Research team uses mathematical and statistical modelling – applied through programming – to gain new insights from data. Our work ranges from researching and developing new strategies, to using machine learning to understand patterns in large datasets, and building tools for easier data visualisation.

We are looking for candidates with a strong technical grasp of mathematics and statistics, as well as some experience with coding. Most of our work is done in R and Python, so a knowledge of these languages is preferable but not a prerequisite. Candidates will also typically be studying for, or have, a degree in a quantitative subject like Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, Engineering, or Computer Science.

Economic Research

The Economic Research team is responsible for driving macro strategy forward through regional, thematic and event-driven research and advancing fundamental understanding of FX markets at Record. Strategy development and investment decision support is a key component of team’s responsibility with the aim of helping firm’s clients navigate turbulent financial markets.

There are no subject requirements for this role but interest in international macroeconomics, a strong grasp of econometrics techniques and good communication skills are essential.

Client Team

The Client Team, or sales team, support Record’s technical “interface” with clients, prospective clients, and consultants. They work to maintain and grow our client-base, and to ensure that we always meet clients’ expectations.

Investment Strategy

The Investment Strategy team research new investment strategies and enhance existing ones. They are responsible for ongoing monitoring and management of strategies for existing clients and provide bespoke product-related support.

In our 2019 summer internship programme, 75% of interns were made an offer of employment.

Katy Husband
Sustainability Officer. Graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA in Economics and History.

“My internship at Record was the perfect start to my career. I gained invaluable experience into the world of finance and was able to apply my degree to my research project on how to measure productivity in the context of the Balassa-Samuelson effect. I used regression analysis to compare different productivity measures, and had the opportunity to present my evaluation of their pros and cons at the end to senior management. I was also able to benefit from the mentorship of the Research team, who taught me not only how to conduct market analysis, but also key practical skills like how to use excel and handle data. The culture and people at Record especially stood out as everyone in the company was so friendly and welcoming. Most of all I gained the confidence to continue a career in finance, and accepted a full-time job in the Research team after I completed my degree.”

Polly Milsom
2020 Summer Intern

“I had the opportunity to intern in the Investment Strategy team at Record, where I worked on a project investigating hedge pressure in the FX options market. This was an amazing opportunity to learn in depth about a new and fascinating asset class, and I was impressed by the independence I was given to explore the concept. This meant I always felt challenged and had to think creatively everyday. Despite working remotely, I was also able to get a feel for everyday life at Record through attending morning passive management meetings, macro strategy discussions and teach-ins from different departments. I even managed to get involved with virtual fitness classes! It was great to meet people from across the firm, who were all exceptionally bright and interesting, but also very welcoming.”

In the last 5 years, 44% of ex-interns went on to be employed by Record.
