What you'll do

For interns joining our Private Side Front Office teams, you’ll be supporting Primary Capital Markets and Private Financing and Risk Solutions teams in Frankfurt, Paris, and Amsterdam. Our teams cover leading financial institutions, asset managers, insurance companies and corporates in Debt Capital Markets and Solutions transactions.

If you join our Public Side Front Office, you’ll be supporting our Rates, Credit, Money Market and FX Sales teams in Frankfurt. These teams service real money investors and banks across Germany, Austria and Switzerland for both primary and secondary market transactions.
