Summer Intern

June 2021 - August 2021 New York City, NY
“I liked the amount of autonomy I had during the internship period. I liked that in order to be involved I had to stick my neck out and really get in touch with the other teams.”

Risk Management Intern

June 2021 - August 2021 White Plains, NY
“I enjoyed being able to work on a meaningful project, and being treated like an equal member of the team, not just an intern. The work I did had a meaningful impact on the future of the Liquidity Risk Team. I was able to work closely with the FRBNY and higher-ups within the bank.”
