Morgan Stanley is more than a leading financial services firm. With offices spanning 43 countries and talented, passionate people bringing excellence and integrity to everything we do, the firm is truly global. Throughout the firm’s history, diverse and talented individuals have worked together to develop our new ideas and ground-breaking financial products for the benefit of clients.

Using the Firm’s proprietary technology platform, Morgan Stanley Fund Services (MSFS) provides a full range of fund administration services including daily accounting and financial reporting; transfer agency and investor services; middle- and back-office support; and integrated portfolio analytics. MSFS is supported by more than 700 professionals based in New York, London, Dublin, Mumbai, Bangalore, Glasgow and Hong Kong.

The Programme is a paid, full time summer internship, that provides interns with a thorough overview of our industry, and the challenges and opportunities one can expect from a Morgan Stanley career, in addition to serving as a pipeline into our Full Time Fund Services Analyst Programme.

Training begins with a Firmwide induction along with peers from other divisions of the Firm. This is followed by a series of sessions delivered by Talent Management. In addition to the initial training, Summer Analysts will also receive considerable on-the-job training, a series of “Lunch & Learns,” networking events and work-shadowing opportunities.
