Global Capital Markets Summer Analyst Program

At Bank of America Merrill Lynch, we have one of the largest corporate client footprints in the U.S., and we are leaders in structuring interest rate and foreign exchange risk management solutions for these clients. Our Global Rates and Currencies team focuses on providing advisory and execution in the interest rate and foreign exchange markets, working closely with our product partners in Trading as well as our client coverage partners in Banking. This unique Sales role allows access and daily exposure to the public markets while at the same time providing the opportunity to work as close strategic advisors for the firm’s top corporate clients.


Our Summer Analysts rotate through both the Rates and FX Sales desks, gaining exposure to a wide spectrum of clients and products. Some corporate clients in FX trade multiple times per day while other more strategic clients may only tap the markets on an infrequent basis but for larger and more complicated transactions. Our clients trade FX spot, FX forwards, FX and interest rate swaps and options in both markets. Our summer interns gain exposure to all facets of the business, allowing them the flexibility to explore the best fit for their skills and goals.
