Regulatory Affairs Internship
IIF’s Regulatory Affairs Department focuses on the development and articulation of industry positions on numerous global financial regulatory issues, including: prudential capital and liquidity requirements; systemic risk regulation, cross-border resolution and related “too big to fail” issues; industry risk management and governance practices; cyber security; sustainable finance; Financial crime and related AML/CFT issues; digital finance regulation and policy.
The IIF’s Regulatory Affairs Department is seeking an outstanding and highly motivated student to assist with analytical and advocacy activities. These activities will include being actively involved in analyzing developments in international financial-services regulation and providing support to the regulatory department in preparing discussions among members and with regulators. This is a part-time unpaid internship; however, it offers an excellent opportunity to enhance your knowledge, experience, sharpen your research skills in regulatory affairs and may qualify for academic credit. We request a minimum commitment of up to 20 hours a week. Scheduling is flexible. The internship period is for fall and possibly spring.
A successful candidate would have excellent research and writing skills and be able to manage a substantive research project independently. Master’s degree 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.
