Do you want to learn about the world of investing? Do you want to learn about crypto currencies like Ethereum, companies issuing NFTs for the NBA like Dapper Labs? 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. 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 manages a portfolio of $9 billion invested across the public and private markets. We are a 10-person team excited to provide a great learning opportunity for individuals who are eager to explore investment management. You 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 a 10-week intensive and hands-on program.

Internships are full-time beginning mid-June 2023, and ending mid-August 2023 and will be held at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. If public health guidelines prevent staff from working on-site, the program will be conducted remotely.

Interns will receive a stipend of $6,400 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

 Provide support for ongoing operations and ad hoc research and analysis

Culmination Project:

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


 Intellectual curiosity and critical thinking skills

 Demonstrated interest in the investment industry

 Familiarity with Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
