Global Policy Initiatives Internship
The IIF’s Global Policy Initiatives Department is seeking two outstanding and highly motivated graduate students to assist with various research projects, including sustainable finance, long-term investment policy issues, and assessment of financial sector and market risks. These activities will include being actively involved in ad-hoc research requests, downloading data from official national sources, creating and maintaining spreadsheet models. This is an unpaid internship; however, it offers an excellent opportunity to enhance your knowledge, experience, sharpen your research skills and may qualify for academic credit. Scheduling is flexible with the option for either a part-time or full-time internship.
A successful candidate would have a demonstrable interest or experience in assessment of financial sector developments, excellent research and writing skills and be able to manage a substantive research project independently. Master’s degree in in finance, economics or a related field is preferred but a comparable degree in a related discipline may be acceptable. Proficient with Microsoft Office 360 Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) is required. Previous knowledge and/or experience with data providers such as Bloomberg or Haver is an advantage.
