Anyways, lemme actually contribute. What you're asking is similar to me saying. "Anyone know any F500 ceo's who offer mentorship programs?"

Of course 1 or 2 offer them but everyone else practically doesn't. Of the few who do get to be mentored, they don't do it through any formal routes.

Thank you for the contribution! I just want to find out those few that irregularly take in interns, another example would be Aquamarine Fund. I was hoping that other people who maybe did an internship at a HF in Europe or know people who did this or have a better career service at their university (where maybe some HF offer internships). I think there is a likelihood (>10 percent) for that to happen so i wrote this post ;-)

What you're desribing doesn't happen with HFs except for certain big firms like P72, DE Shaw, Man Group etc, you can easily find that on the internet.

For the rest of the industry. This is how it happens.

1: You come into contact with a manager (many ways this can happen).

2: After chatting, the manager is impressed and offers you an internship.

Search WSO forum history, you will see that all undergrads who got internships, got them through unique circumstances.
The industry is all about networking.
