2020 Financial Research Data Analyst Internship

The Programme

At Bloomberg, our products are fueled by powerful information. We combine data and context to paint the whole picture for our clients, around the clock – from around the world. In Global Data, we’re responsible for delivering this data, news and analytics through innovative technology, quickly and accurately.

More than 320,000 business leaders rely on the real-time financial information available on the Bloomberg Terminal. We provide portfolio managers with information on companies’ financial performance to assist in profitability analysis, and to determine the risk and return of their investment. Buy-side and sell-side equity analysts use our data to create valuation models in order to provide stock recommendations, target prices, and to assess the viability of investing in a company.

As a Financial Research Data Analyst intern, you will be responsible for ensuring the consistency, quality and timely delivery of special industry data and key performance indicators for a portfolio of companies across a sector.

You will work closely with experienced research analysts on the Bloomberg Intelligence (BI) team to learn the ins and outs of conducting investment research while ensuring that Bloomberg offers the best in class industry and company specific data coverage in the market.

You will gain knowledge on how technology, regulation, litigation and economies shape the environment each company operates in – and about the larger industry impact. Most roles will be Equity focused, but there may also be opportunities to work with other BI Research teams including Corporate Credit, Fixed Income Strategy, FX/Interest Rate Strategy, Equity Strategy, ETFs, and ESG.

What You Will Do

  • Your journey at Bloomberg will begin with a week of classroom based financial product and Terminal functionality training, to broaden your knowledge of the global financial markets and our market leading Bloomberg solutions.

Of course we also want to give you the chance to get to know your peers, so you’ll also take part in volunteering activities and social events with interns from other departments.
