Internship

About DWS

At DWS, we’re capturing the opportunities of tomorrow. You can be part of a leading, client-committed, global Asset Manager, making an impact on individuals, communities, and the world.

Today, markets still face a whole new set of pressures – but also a whole lot of opportunity too. Opportunity to innovate differently. Opportunity to invest responsibly. And opportunity to make change. This is needed more than ever as we currently experience high interest rates, a once-in-a-lifetime health crisis, a shift in global demographics – and politics – as well as advances in digitalization and economies moving towards a more sustainable future.

While there is always uncertainty in markets, one thing remains clear: there is always a new situation that requires the right investment answers. We call it the new now.

As investors on behalf of our clients, it is our role to find these investment solutions. Our goal is to ensure the best possible foundation for our clients’ financial future.

We offer individuals and institutions access to our strong investment capabilities across all major liquid and illiquid asset classes as well as solutions aligned to growth trends. Our diverse expertise in Active, Passive and Alternatives asset management – as well as our deep environmental, social and governance focus – complement each other when creating targeted solutions for our clients. Our expertise and on-the-ground knowledge of our economists, research analysts and investment professionals are brought together in one consistent global CIO View, giving strategic guidance to our investment approach.

About the Internship

Based in one of the world’s global financial centres, you will gain valuable insight into a variety of teams with experienced professionals who develop best-in-class products and manage high-value portfolios. Along the way, you will gain vital experience at the heart of a progressive business whilst being exposed to a range of areas. Whilst you can expect a high learning curve from our DWS Internship, you will benefit from the support of your managers and mentors along with unparalleled exposure to the world of Asset Management. This internship is an ideal way to determine whether a career in Financial Services & Asset Management meets your personal aspirations.

The three month DWS Internship program is an opportunity where candidates will gain a wide range of practical experience within the division. Individual projects, participation in senior speaker sessions and networking events will all be part of the internship.

We’re excited to offer successful interns a place on the DWS Graduate P.A.C.E. Program the following year.
