The hedge funds that hire graduates and interns

So you want to leave university/college and work for a hedge fund? Once, this wasn't possible: hedge funds only hired people who'd been through banks' sales and trading graduate programmes. Now though, they're increasingly training up university leavers themselves.

If you're looking for a graduate or intern position in a hedge fund, these are the funds where you might find one in 2021-2022.  Be warned: competition for places is likely to be intense and applications are already open.
