The Quantitative Strategies Group (QSG) is responsible for the models and analytics used in the Sales and Trading divisions within Global Markets. The group designs, builds and maintains industrial strength tools for analyzing, pricing and risk managing financial products across all asset classes traded by Bank of America Merrill Lynch. The group works closely with trading, structuring, risk management and technology to provide analytics which can quickly and accurately quantify the firm’s risks.

Summer Analysts within the equity QSG team in Hong Kong participate in a 10 week program which is designed to give you a unique opportunity to gain exposure to a job as an equity strategist. The program begins with firm wide orientation, and continues throughout the internship with training, networking events and social activities. You will be given responsibilities early and will be expected to make a significant contribution to the team. As internships mirror full-time positions, they also include goal-setting and a formal review process as well as plenty of opportunity to interact with traders, management and other members of the global QSG team.

Possible Responsibilities (vary with placement): 

  • Development of new products/models
  • Risk/PL analysis
  • Development of quantitative tools
  • Investigation of hedging strategies and hedging cost
  • Electronic trading analysis (e.g. portfolio optimization, market microstructure, transaction costs)

A successful summer analyst applicant in the equity QSG team will be placed within QSG for the duration of the internship program. Each summer analyst will be given a major project to complete on something that is relevant to the business they are supporting. As part of their internship they will be expected to present their project to the rest of the QSG team.

Placement within QSG is determined after the hiring process depending on the business needs and the interests/skills of the Summer Analyst. The various teams within equity QSG include: 

  • Flow Derivatives Strats
