Job Description


As an intern on SIG's research team, you will be partnered with our senior analysts and traders to assist in identifying investment 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 ten week summer 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. Research interns are placed on a sector-focused team and work directly on the trading floor. The ten week summer program serves as our primary source for hiring full-time Research Analysts.

At SIG, we place a high value on education and development. You will experience this dedication to training firsthand as you work collaboratively with the research analysts and traders on your desk to learn how our analyst opinions impact trading decisions and gain the practical exposure needed to perform your daily responsibilities. You will also participate in classroom education where you will learn about options and the decision-making strategies that our traders employ. This role provides the unique opportunity to combine the quantitative aspects of finance with creative problem solving in order to develop trade ideas in a fast-paced proprietary trading environment.
