Remote HF internship - what did you do?

Hi monkeys. 

I currently have an offer for a remote summer internship at a small HF (think 500mm AUM) for this summer. The job description was very vague, and I was wondering what I might do on a day-to-day basis. Do you guys have any experience with this? 

Thanks!!

It's really up to your pm and your firm. For me, i would have small projects ranging from reactivating a name and seeing if theres an investment opportunity to filling out data sheets of kpis. Lots of solo 10-k/research. Not alot of teamwork.

Enjoy it while you can! HF internships are amongst the most interesting as far as the type of work goes. have been in a similar role and despite being dumped the work the PMs don't want to do, it's 1000x better than making powerpoint slides.

I did some research and a ton of bitchwork during my HF internship last summer and being honest about that seemed like a pro during IB interviews. They seemed to appreciate how I knew the grass isn't necessarily greener on the buyside and that I cranked out a ton of PowerPoint slides. What's useful isn't necessarily what's sexy which defines the analyst experience.

what type of bitchwork if you mind slides vs cold calling vs data collection?
