2016 Internship Securities Sales – Equities, Rates & Credit, FX


Our Investment Bank’s Securities (Investment Client Services – ICS) business provides services to professional investors across financial markets. These investors could be asset managers, hedge funds, sovereign wealth funds or other large pools of professionally-managed capital. Our offering incorporates investment advice and all trading and post-trade services. We’re a top-tier global equities house with leading franchises in research, cash equities, derivatives and prime brokerage. We also offer sophisticated structured solutions on our market-leading FX and precious metal platforms. Our rates and credit business provides secondary trading capabilities, primary issuance capability and more structured solutions across government and corporate bonds.

If you are on a client-focused sales team within our securities division, you’ll promote products and trading opportunities to clients based on an in-depth understanding of their needs and investment styles. If you’re a sales trader you will be the link between clients and traders, providing our clients with market color and ensuring best-execution for their market orders.

In both these roles, you’ll aim to maximize investment returns for clients by using the considerable amount of capital markets flow information and investment research at UBS’s disposal. As a member of our prime brokerage and clearing division, you’ll be working closely with hedge funds and other asset managers to help them with all aspects of running their business and trading strategies.
