The Natixis Summer Analyst Program is a 10-week educational immersive program offered to rising juniors, providing a realistic glimpse into the Firm. The summer kicks off with training and orientation followed by continued educational and mentorship programming, and networking events. You will participate in mid-summer and end-of-summer evaluations to ensure that you are honing your skills and receiving timely feedback on your performance. The program culminates in a project presentation to your peers and senior management.

Over the summer, there will be limitless opportunities to network across the firm and meet experts from different industries and backgrounds. Our apprenticeship model and flat organizational structure encourages Summer Analysts to network across all industries, products, and divisions at Natixis. 

  • Students selected to join either the Investment Banking Pool (Banking, Coverage, Strategic Sectors, Latin America) or the Global Markets Business will rotate through two desk/products/divisions within these Business Units during the 10-week program. 
  • Summer Analysts joining our other businesses (Risk, Support Functions, Client Management) will work specifically within their assigned team or desk over the summer. 

At the end of the summer, direct offers are extended to exceptional performers to join the upcoming full-time Analyst class.

The Full Time Program is a two-year program exposing Program Analysts to multiple industries, products, and functions at the Firm. Immediate access to senior management, top tier training, and a flat organizational structure help promote long term growth, while expanding your perspectives through a unique business experience spanning across different business lines.

The program begins in July with three weeks of initial training and orientation followed by ongoing “on the desk” continued learning and education. Analysts will have extensive cultural, technical, and business line education given by an array of external trainers and internal Natixis leaders via classroom style sessions.

Throughout the program, managers guide and monitor career development by facilitating the feedback, review and advancement processes. Placement for the two-year program is determined based on feedback and business need following the 10-week Summer Analyst Program or through specific interviews each Fall. Program Analysts can work in: 

  • the Investment Banking Analyst Pool which includes working across our Investment Banking, Coverage, Strategic Sectors, and Latin America businesses. Analysts will be managed by the Pool Manager and will be assigned a diverse mix of projects, deal flow, and a variety of activity across the firm. The Pool will help future junior bankers develop a multi-functional skill set and banking expertise ranging across Natixis’ key focus areas. 
  • Global Markets, where you will spend the entirety of the two-year program with one desk/product team. Placements will be determined based upon business need, headcount availability, and preferences following the rotational Summer Analyst Program. 
  • Risk & Control, Support, and Client Management, where you will work specifically with one desk/team/group for the duration of the two-year program. 


Our programs target candidates with a high level of academic and leadership achievement who are interested in working within a rapidly changing and demanding, but ultimately rewarding environment.

The ideal candidate should possess:

  • A basic knowledge of how the markets work and an understanding of important related fields (e.g. accounting, economics, interest rates) as it relates to each specific business area
  • Strong analytical and quantitative skills
  • Professional presence, self-confidence, and maturity
  • Strong initiative—the willingness and ability to succeed in an entrepreneurial, team-based environment
  • Strong communication skills—both verbal & written
  • Demonstrated capability for analysis and strategic thinking
  • High Proficiency in Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint


Natixis accepts applications from a wide array of universities through their career center portals as well as through the Natixis application page. We visit campuses in the Fall to engage with interested candidates. Please check your Handshake account or your local Career Center to see when we will be on campus – we look forward to meeting you!

Students interested in our Summer Analyst Program should apply by the indicated deadline and expect to go through the interview process between September and December. The Firm conducts first round 1:1 interviews in person or over the phone and each division holds its own final round of interviews in our offices or over video conference, if applicable. The Summer Program runs from June through August.

Applicants are encouraged to apply to up to three divisions. Although the Firm focuses on filling our Program Analyst class through our Summer Program, there is a chance for potential interviews each Fall.
