2023 Institutional Equity Division Quantitative Finance Summer Analyst / Associate Program (Hong Kong)
Strong quantitative talent is the backbone for many businesses at Morgan Stanley. Whether creating customized, complex investment solutions for clients, developing trading strategies using machine learning techniques, or collaborating with AI researchers at our Data Center of Excellence to build state-of-the-art algorithms, the quantitative expertise embodied by our team has separated us from our peers. At Morgan Stanley, we understand that future innovation in the financial markets will be created at the intersection of technology, data and a quantitative approach. Summer Analysts/Associates will play a large role in that vision and we encourage students of all technical disciplines to showcase their toolkit and become part of our industry-leading, global franchise.

The internship is an intensive 10-week program that provides Summer Analysts/Associates the opportunity to work alongside Full-Time professionals on impactful, innovative quantitative projects. The multi-faceted programs feature senior teach-in sessions, divisional speaker series, product area training, networking events, and community service. With individual coaching and continuous feedback, the program enables Summer Analysts/Associates to experience and understand what a long-term career with the Firm entails.
Training Program
The Summer will kick off with a week-long introductory training program, alongside all Sales & Trading Summer interns, which will provide an institutional contextualization to the work that Summer Analysts/Associates will be doing through market-knowledge training, finance workshops, coding and product training.

Following the training week, Summer Analysts/Associates join their assigned Division, and continue to receive more individualized, on-the-job training on their specific desks and begin daily work and projects. Interns will have a direct manager, as well as a mentor, both of whom will act as invaluable resources to the Analysts throughout their time at Morgan Stanley.
