Investment Research Intern 2019, Singapore


Wellington Management offers comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 50 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.


We seek to develop interns and early career hires through an apprenticeship model that offers extensive one-on-one interaction with senior investment professionals. In this role, you will have in-depth exposure to the intricacies of the asset management industry as you assist our investors in conducting independent investment research.

There are four components to the summer internship experience:

  • Project for an investment team. Complete analytical projects for one of our investment teams. Share and present your work in a group forum. Contribute investment ideas to an active portfolio.
  • Get to know our firm. Interact with seasoned employees throughout the Wellington organization. Build your network, and discover what makes the Wellington experience unique.
  • Immersion in the world of investing. Develop and deepen your investment knowledge by attending company management meetings, accessing the firm's proprietary research and participating in our daily investor meetings.
  • Mentorship and feedback. Benefit from the training provided to develop the skills required for this internship, and a potential career in investment management. This will be through a combination of on-the-job training covering accounting, financial statement analysis, advanced Excel modeling and Factset / Bloomberg tutorials. You will receive continual support through strong mentorship and guidance.


We seek excellence in the people
we employ and the products and services we offer.
We seek to be a leader, an innovator and symbol of integrity in the investment management industry.

  • We seek dedicated individuals with excellent academic credentials and demonstrated analytical and writing abilities.
  • Candidates should possess outstanding interpersonal and organizational skills, be resourceful and detail-oriented, and have a strong work ethic.
  • We are looking for interns who have a passion for gathering information, are inquisitive, and can draw connections between, or recognize patterns among, seemingly disparate topics.
  • An economics or finance major is not a prerequisite, but candidates must be proficient with Excel and have an interest in a career in finance.

As a successful internship can lead to a full-time offer for our Launch Research Associate programme, only students in their penultimate of study are encouraged to apply.

This internship will run from 1 June 2019 to 31 August 2019.
