Your role at a glance

Are you looking for a role that is technically challenging? Do you want a future that allows you to develop commercial acumen alongside your technical skills? Are you keen to have the opportunity to progress in a breadth of roles – technical or business?

We are looking for undergraduates who can answer “yes” to the above for our 2022 Year in Industry Scheme. If you are successful you will join Legal & General’s well-regarded Investment Management business, within our Asset Allocation team, which plays a pivotal role in our continued success.

 

What you'll be doing

LGIM is looking to recruit an intern into the Asset Allocation team. The Asset Allocation team manage a variety of multi-asset funds which utilise the benefits of diversification to reduce risk while maintaining an attractive return to investors. The asset allocation within these funds range from relatively passive to more active in nature and can be used by defined benefit (DB) schemes, defined contribution (DC) schemes and retail investors.

The team conducts a wide range of quantitative and qualitative analysis in order to determine the asset allocations that best suit clients across the range of funds. This includes tail risk analysis as well as monitoring risk and performance to ensure the funds meet their long term objectives.

The intern will be joining a front office investment management team and will be responsible for a wide range of tasks that aid the team's investment process and distribution efforts. You will be expected to interact with the teams economists, strategists, portfolio managers and investment specialists on a day to day basis. There are a series of regular tasks that must be performed as well as ad hoc or longer term projects. Most work involves either qualitative or quantitative analysis of numerical data, including time series data.

 

What we're looking for

  • We welcome applications from all academic backgrounds, however the work will be technical in nature and so we are seeking individuals with demonstrated enthusiasm and aptitude for investments and willing to improve and apply their mathematical and economic skills.
  • The role may have some exposure to quantitative analytics and modelling within the investment process so familiarity with Microsoft Excel and the ability to code is desirable. Python and VBA is preferred.
  • You will need to be available for 12 months from Summer 2022. Given the nature of the fixed term contract this position lends itself well to a placement in industry during an undergraduate degree, however we do not only look at candidates in this position.

Benefits

Whatever your role, we reward ability, performance and attitude with a package that looks after all the things that are important to you. Our employees have a wide range of benefits including a generous pension scheme, life assurance, at least 25 days’ holiday (with potential to rise to 26 days), private medical insurance, performance related bonuses, a variety of share schemes, discounts at both a huge range of high street stores and our own great products. Your hard work will be rewarded when you join us.
