2018 Global Investment Banking Summer Intern

Global Investment Banking Summer Intern


Application Deadline: Rolling; early application recommended.


Royal Bank of Canada is a premier investment bank that provides a focused set of products and services to institutions, corporations, governments and high net worth clients in over 100 countries.

We understand that the first steps in any career in finance are critical. With that in mind, we have the right formula to provide you with the opportunities and professional development you need to turn those first steps into a rewarding career.

You'll be part of a company with a superior financial track record, credit rating and reputation. In fact, we maintained a high credit rating throughout the financial crisis.

A position as a Summer Intern in our London office offers exposure to high profile mergers and acquisitions and financing transactions across a range of industries. It will also give you exposure to senior RBC Capital Markets professionals and clients. An insight into the working life of a first year analyst is an invaluable experience if you want to pursue this career.

Summer Interns will gain hands-on experience within a division of the bank and career-building mentorship. Every year we recruit successful applicants into our London office that convert to our full-time Analyst programmes the following year. There are opportunities in many areas to suit the interests of driven and focused students.

Training & Development

You will receive both class-room and e-learning based training, as well as mid and end-of-summer reviews as well as constructive feedback from your business manager throughout your placement.

The programme also features a Capital Markets Speaker Series - regular information sessions given by our leading market professionals. There are also several educational and social events throughout the nine week programme.

Great care and resources have been devoted to ensure that at the end of the programme you have a solid understanding of the elements necessary for a successful career at RBC.

What do we look for?

We look for diverse individuals with outstanding academic records, proven analytical skills, a demonstrated interest in finance and a history of participation in extracurricular activities. Other essential qualities we look for include strong oral and written communication skills, proven leadership capabilities, initiative, and the ability to play a key role as a team member in a fast-paced and challenging work environment. Fluency in a second European language is not required, but would be an advantage.
