Nasdaq Dorsey Wright is a boutique investment advisory and asset management division of Nasdaq, focused on providing quantitative capital market strategies to Wall Street and professional money managers globally. The team releases daily market notes, produces longer-form studies using technical analysis, and supports clients daily via their research platform. The team is seeking a Technical Research Intern for the summer of 2024 to assist with ad hoc daily research tasks, longer-form studies on security price trends/indicators, and communications with financial advisors about their firm’s investment tools/views. The scope of this role allows for high levels of exposure to key business leaders and investors, allowing driven interns the potential to connect with individuals not typically available to entry positions in the investment world.

  • Already have experience with market research, personal investing, technical analysis, or investment advising.
    • Student investment funds/clubs are a preferred involvement.

  • Generate ideas for growing brand awareness and engaging with more investors via social media outlets.
