2023 Summer Internship - Alt Credit & Private Strategies Intern, US
Internship positions are located at PIMCO's Newport Beach, CA Headquarters and New York, NY
See yourself as a Alternative Credit & Private Strategies Intern: Since launching its first opportunistic credit vehicles over 15 years ago, PIMCO has developed a significant presence in both alternative credit and private investment strategies. Our strategies include those that seek to identify value primarily in listed securities, relying on fundamental and capital structure analysis, and also strategies that seek to privately finance the debt and equity needs of companies, asset holders, and origination platforms. We invest globally across commercial and residential real estate and mortgage credit, performing and distressed corporate debt, and specialty finance markets.
You will work alongside seasoned associates and Portfolio Managers, focusing on financial modeling and qualitative analysis in support of direct lending and special situations/distressed debt investing. Throughout the course of the summer, you will support their team efforts in sourcing, evaluating, underwriting and managing of alternative credit and private strategy investments.
