2024 Asset Management - Products Summer Internship Program - London
Location: Greater London
Job Type: Full time
Are you curious about portfolio management and investment strategies? We're looking for energetic, creative talent to join our global team of experts to develop innovative investment strategies for our clients.
You'll collaborate with industry experts to develop investment solutions for our corporate, government, not-for-profit and clients worldwide. You'll work with client portfolio managers, traders, research analysts, marketers and client advisors to understand and execute investments strategies. Help build our clients' futures while developing your own expertise in a dynamic team environment.
Working here means joining a collaborative, supportive team. We want your diverse perspective to help us innovate the next wave of products and solutions for our clients. You'll have what you need to succeed – from training and mentorship from senior executives to projects that engage your skills.
What You Can Expect
Our summer internship programme runs for 9 weeks. The programme is a unique cross line of business programme linking both Asset Management and Wealth Management. This provides a broader educational offering and enables you as an intern to widen your J.P. Morgan employee network.
It begins in London with five days of orientation and training. Expert instructors and J.P. Morgan professionals will teach you about our history, the scale and scope of our organisation today and our committed plans for tomorrow. We’ll teach you technical and practical skills that will help you hit the ground running.
The programme is non-rotational providing you with an opportunity to develop solid relationships with your desk/team and get involved in real-time projects. Be prepared to be flexible, learn quickly, and act on your judgements. There’s a lot to absorb but you'll benefit from the support of a dedicated junior and senior staff member to help you integrate into your team and to answer any questions you might have throughout the summer.
You will participate in a performance management process where you will set and monitor your goals and objectives. Alongside the learning curve of your main role, you’ll gain a different perspective of the firm through desk based training, business presentations and various networking opportunities.
The program is an opportunity to take your career to the next level through hands-on experience, relevant skills training and valuable professional networking. Based on your personal achievements, those who successfully complete the program may receive offers of full-time employment.
You will be placed in one of the below teams for your 9 week Summer Internship:

We would also recommend visiting our free Virtual Internship programme via Forage, where there is an Asset Management virtual internship experience created to help you gain a further understanding of the tasks, roles and types of work that you could carry out. These online courses are self-paced, take approximately 4-6 hours to complete where you will receive a certificate on completion. This experience has shown to assist candidates with the recruitment process.
We have also launched - Inside Asset Management, a new video series designed to help you to gain an understanding of the ins and outs of the asset management industry and what it would be like if you chose this fascinating line of business as a career.
A strong interest in finance and asset management is essential, as are logical thinking and quantitative skills, flexibility, teamwork, excellent attention to detail, strong interpersonal skills and the ability to handle pressure and enjoy a collaborative environment. A well-rounded academic background is important. You certainly don’t need a degree in Economics or Finance, but a good level of numeracy is required.
Additional requirements include:
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills
- Confidence and initiative to take on responsibility and manage your own projects.
- Our internship opportunities are available to students in their penultimate year of study.
- An expected graduation year 2025.
But beyond that, what we’re most interested in are the things that make you, you: the personal qualities, outside interests and achievements beyond academia that demonstrate the kind of person you are and the difference you could bring to the team.
