Education support

We invest in training tomorrow’s asset management leaders for Invesco and our industry.

Training the next generation of financial professionals is important for our industry and for our future. It’s also critical that we support equitable access to careers in asset management and invest in programs that address educational inequities and enable underresourced students to participate.

Training and support

Invesco internship programs

Our internships help develop investment skills among high school and university students. Our interns have the opportunity to participate in impactful, real-world projects on topics such as climate risk scenario analysis and portfolio modeling. We provide an annual summer internship program, and we also run internships through partner organizations to help us target a more diverse candidate pool. These include Girls Who Invest, Investment 20/20 and Cristo Rey Jesuit High Schools in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and New York.

Cambridge Judge Business School

Invesco completed the sixth year of a 10-year collaboration with Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS) in 2022. Through this relationship, we support research activities in long-term asset management, alternative finance and data analytics—all while Invesco’s clients benefit from access to cutting-edge insights and research from this globally renowned business school.

In collaboration with CJBS, we developed Game Changers, a video series that brings together thought leaders from around the globe to shed new light on how rapid innovation and disruption are increasingly transforming economic and financial activity at the global, national, firm and household levels. Highlights of our partnership in 2022 include:

  • 30+ thought leadership items created in collaboration with CJBS.
  • Nine Invesco-sponsored studies published by CJBS.
  • Founding sponsor for Centre for Alternative Finance through funding from Invesco.
  • Eight global consulting research projects supported, providing opportunities for 40 MBA and MFin students.
  • Numerous collaborations relating to climate risk, sustainable investing and ESG investing initiatives.
  • CJBS speakers at 60 Invesco client events, held across 19 different locations globally, attended by over 3,700 Invesco clients.
  • Invesco became official sponsor of the Cambridge Digital Assets Programme.
  • Invesco became official sponsor of the Regulatory Genome Project.

Georgia Institute of Technology

Invesco partners with the Scheller College of Business, part of the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), through their Financial Services Innovation Lab—established to serve as an interface between the financial services industry and Georgia Tech faculty and students. Our collaboration supports financial literacy and increased dialogue regarding the challenges, disruption and opportunities in the asset management industry.

We also support a program run by Dr. Sudheer Chava, Director of the Quantitative and Computational Finance Program (QCFP) at Georgia Tech, focused on providing a foundation in qualitative skills for complex mathematical modeling, coupled with a practical understanding of finance theory. This rigorous combination ensures that students develop proficiencies in programming languages and modeling techniques, thus preparing them for a career in investment management. By engaging with Dr. Chava’s QCFP Master’s program, Invesco has an opportunity to identify talent and develop relationships for future opportunities.
