Internship Programme

Introduction +

At the heart of our business is our investment capabilities and performance. We are trusted to handle other peoples' money because we are responsible and we have the skills and expertise to invest for our customers to achieve a greater return. Investment comes with risks as well as benefits, but those risks should never come as a surprise to our customers and the benefits can never be overstated. We pride ourselves on always aiming to deliver the best outcomes for our customers. Our industry awards are testament to this and we are proud of our achievements.

Our internship programme is designed to nurture talent and develop individuals who have the potential to go on to become graduate trainees and be part of our continued success story.

We will provide you with a comprehensive training programme which includes workshops on asset management which are suitable for those with and without industry knowledge. During your time with us, you will get involved with live projects that will further develop your skills and knowledge about the intricacies of asset management. In addition, you will be paired with a 'buddy' who will act as an informal support contact. You will also be invited to networking and social events and will have the opportunity to get actively involved with our corporate social responsibility programme.
Our emphasis is on engaging with students who share, and will live our cultural values; We are Empowered, We are Trustworthy, We Collaborate and We Achieve. Our cultural values encompass what we call the Spirit of Royal London which defines "the way we do things around here", to ensure that we deliver the best outcomes for our customers. It's integral to building a successful, sustainable business.
