Looking for unpaid work experience at a macro-focused prop fund in London


1 0

I'm a student who has been extremely passionate about the financial markets from a young age. By passionate, I don't mean 99.9% of young people who want to go into "investment banking" or be a "hedge fund manager" because of the money and not actually fascinated by how money works and how it links with the world around them. Unlike them, I get extremely excited whenever I hear about the basis on the cross-currency dollar swaps getting deeper and deeper because of its proven ability to act as an indicator for short stress in the financial markets.

I've spent 2 years of my life reading EXTENSIVELY on the financial markets and macroeconomics and recently started investing real money. I know how to read financial statements, I know the principles of macroeconomics and I also know how to disseminate important information from 10-Ks (not the mainstream Apple, Microsoft etc). Most of my knowledge is centred around the US markets, with a small bit of knowledge around the UK markets. I also possess very good critical thinking skills, hence my selection to be on the UK national debating team at the World Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championships 2019.

I know I am very young, but I've always preferred to hang out with adults because I can actually understand their conversations and find the conversations with kids about video games etc very unstimulating. I would really appreciate it if any of you could refer me/arrange a call so you can talk to me and see what I'm like, and if you like me then offer me an unpaid gig at your firm. A phone call is all I ask for, and once again I would really appreciate any of your help. I am only doing this now because I believe I can take the next step in learning more about a world which I am consumed by every day.
