Lazard's asset management business offers a range of investments in equity and fixed income strategies, alternative investments, and private equity funds to corporations, public funds, sovereign entities, endowments and foundations, labor funds, financial intermediaries, and private clients.
Lazard offers Asset Management internships (Wealth Management internships are also available, but only in France) that will provide the intern with firsthand experience in the investment world, including a blend of practical and theoretical knowledge. Interns will be mentored by some of the best investment professionals in the industry, within a growing firm that enjoys a strong global presence. The actual internship experience differs based on region:
North America - Lazard Asset Management offers ten-week Summer Internships that provide opportunities to get involved fully in the day-to-day activities of its Investment Management, Sales & Marketing or Operations business areas. The internship will begin with an orientation in which the intern will learn about the organization and how its staff works. Interns will also receive hands-on training to help them succeed in their role. For the rest of the summer, they will work on a team and be mentored by leaders within their industry. They will be tasked with assignments that provide a real sense of the work a full-time opportunity would entail. Successful interns may be extended full-time offers to join the firm upon graduation.
London - Lazard Asset Management offers a six-week Summer Internship Program within its London Equity Research group. The program gives interns the opportunity to experience life as a Research Analyst, understand Lazard's investment philosophy and use it to analyse a group of listed companies, and to receive one-on-one mentoring. Successful completion of the internship may lead to an offer for a full-time Equity research position upon graduation.
France - Opportunities for six-month internships in Asset Management and Wealth Management are offered throughout the year, and in support functions such as Middle Office, Marketing, Legal and Compliance. Opportunities may be available in several locations, including Paris, Nantes, Bordeaux and Lyon.
Asia - Interns will enjoy a similar experience as their colleagues in North America and Europe. However, those opportunities are not as frequent. When openings are available, interns can expect to work in Lazard's Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, or Tokyo offices.
Lazard's culture encourages and rewards intellectual rigor, decisiveness and conviction. The firm looks for undergraduate students who have a strong record of academic achievement and a demonstrated interest in financial markets. The inherent qualifications they look for are a candidate's ability and desire to work in a collaborative environment; their exceptional analytical and communication skills; a commitment to excellence; independent and original thinking; and a global perspective.
