“I had an amazing experience and would definitely recommend applying for such an
internship to anyone who has quantitative skills and an interest in finance. I always felt very welcomed
by everyone and had the opportunity to work with incredibly skilled individuals who were also great
mentors. Not only did I get the chance to see the workflow of a hedge fund from the inside, but I also
learned about many aspects of research that will certainly make me a better scientist.”  Laszlo, DPhil in Maths, 2021 intern at Maniyar Capital.
