Come grow with us

Come and be part of the exciting world of Capital as a Summer Associate! Bring your energy and fresh perspective and you’ll have the opportunity to grow with us professionally, personally, and financially. You’ll work on a challenging project that has real impact on our business but you won’t go at it alone. You’ll be part of a collaborative team that genuinely cares about helping you succeed. You’ll learn about the financial industry and you’ll have opportunities to sit down and talk with senior business leaders. 

At Capital Group, how we work is defined by shared values that include absolute integrity, respect and collaboration. But it’s more than that. It’s smart and highly driven people united in purpose to serve our investors and one another.

Our Marketing & Sales teams bring our services to the marketplace. You’ll work with highly skilled and experienced colleagues, and build relationships with financial advisors and consultants to deliver outstanding practice-management tools, thought-leadership, and investment solutions that help millions of investors reach their long-term financial goals. We are looking for Summer Associates interested in business planning, client analytics, data science, sales support operations, and strategic marketing initiatives. 

What you may do: 

  • Business Insights & Analytics offers a unique opportunity for those interested in data science and business analytics to build some analytic chops, and requires some coding (e.g., Python, SQL, etc.) experience. The ability to create a story by sifting through heaps of qualitative and quantitative data will be integral to be successful.
  • Client Analytics is Capital’s research team that works with clients on asset allocation, portfolio construction and investment strategy through a combination of thought leadership, solutions, and client engagement. The ideal candidate will have strong analytical skills, a quantitative background and effective communication abilities.
  • Digital Marketing Communications is the perfect opportunity for someone with an entrepreneurial spirit who also has a keen sense of today’s digital ecosystem. Strategic focus coupled with an intense curiosity to synthesize information to build a story is key. Someone from a digital background who has web analytics experience is a nice-to-have.
  • Strategic Marketing offers opportunities to work alongside seasoned marketing professionals with diverse backgrounds. Develop your insightful thinking and organizational savvy with B2B and B2C targeted work. The ideal candidate will have marketing experience (e.g., consumer or business marketing, brand mgmt., content or digital marketing) and be able to demonstrate resourcefulness and an ability to handle ambiguity. Entrepreneurial self-starters who want to hone their classical and emerging marketing skills are best suited for these roles.
  • Product Management will require agile learners who are self-starters and intuitively know how to navigate ambiguous problems. Resourceful individuals who are interpersonally and organizationally savvy will be most successful in these roles. Industry and functional experience are a nice-to-have, but analytical skills with a strategic mindset are a must. 
  • Sales Enablement identifies standard methodologies and key success metrics to measure the effectiveness of various sales force thought leadership and development programs. Those who are fired up about sales and marketing capabilities, with strong research, competitive analysis, and consultative skills, are the perfect fit.

Who we're looking for: 

  • You are pursuing master’s degree with an emphasis in business analysis, marketing, product management, strategy, operations, or financial engineering
  • You have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above
  • You have an interest and curiosity in financial markets and the investment management industry
  • You are an agile learner who analyzes problems in new, creative, and collaborative ways
  • You are a sharp, independent thinker who actively and positively contributes in a group dynamic
  • You proactively express your point of view on complex issues and seek opportunities to drive new ideas 
  • You embrace and incorporate feedback for continuous development 

What a summer at Capital offers you: 

  • 12 weeks of robust summer programming, including challenging and meaningful assignments
  • Competitive compensation 
  • Access to senior business leaders
  • A network of influential colleagues, experts, and thought leaders 
  • Collaborative and genuinely supportive work environment
