Max Chappell
Client Services Analyst, Graduated from University of Manchester in Economics and Politics. 2021 Summer Intern.

“I had the opportunity to intern within the Sales Team at Record in the summer of 2021, gaining valuable experience across Record’s sales function. I worked broadly across various projects within private assets FX hedging and business development research. However, my main project was a sales digitalisation piece, researching potential opportunities for Record in the evolving space of sales. I was offered the opportunity to go to the Zurich office for 3 weeks, getting fantastic exposure to Record’s clients In Switzerland and across our European business. In Zurich, I worked on exciting areas of Record’s future growth and supported the Sales team in the distribution of various yield enhancing solutions across a range of alternatives products for institutional clients in Europe. I was able to benefit from a fantastic working culture, where you are very much welcomed across the teams but also challenged and pushed to succeed. This gave me great confidence in accepting a full time analyst role within the Client Services team after the completion of my internship.”

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.”
