Getty Investments Internship Program


Learn about stocks, bonds, hedge funds, private equity and real estate and how these  investments support operations of a non-profit organization like the Getty. The Investments Department at the Getty is offering a 10-week intensive and hands-on program for individuals who are eager to  explore investment management.

Take a peek at how companies like Discord, WhatsApp and TikTok get started by venture capital or how real estate properties like Mammoth Mountain, Under Canvas and Amangiri  become go-to destinations. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from managing directors and analysts across  asset classes, interact with fund managers, and participate in group discussions on investment ideas and asset  allocation throughout

LA residents are encouraged to apply from backgrounds that have traditionally been underrepresented in finance and investment management. Internships are full-time, beginning mid-June 2022, and ending mid-August 2022 and will be held at the Getty Center. If public health guidelines prevent staff from working on-site, the program will be  conducted remotely.

Interns will receive a stipend of $6,000 for the ten-week period. Health insurance, housing and transportation are not provided.

Interns will be trained to: Assist with analyzing portfolios and portfolio companies; assist with initial and ongoing due diligence of investment managers; research and evaluate investment strategies; and provide support for ongoing operations and ad hoc research and analysis

Participants will work towards a special research project to be presented to the Investments Team at the end of the  program.

Qualifications: Intellectual curiosity and critical thinking skills; demonstrated interest in the investment industry; familiarity with Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint); accounting, Investments, Finance, or Economics related coursework (preferred but not required)

Applicants are required to submit the requirements detailed below by 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 5. Materials received after the deadline will result in an incomplete application. Applications hand-delivered to the Getty Center or those sent by postal mail or fax will not be accepted. On the resume, please include G.P.A  and coursework (if any) in math, economics, finance, and accounting. Please be aware that we may request hard copies  of official transcript(s) at a later date in the evaluation process.

Due to the large volume of applications received, staff is unable to respond to application-related questions once the  deadline has passed. Candidates will be contacted for phone or video conference interviews in October, November, and  December. All applicants will be notified of the Getty’s decision by late December.
