Sands Capital Welcomes Its 2024 Summer Intern Class

June 11, 2024

Talented students from universities across the country will be supporting the investment, operations, and client service teams.

Every year, Sands Capital welcomes a diverse and energetic class of summer interns and externs – talented young people who could become a rich resource of future Sands Capital associates. We expect this year will be no different.

For the summer of 2024, Sands Capital is hosting 14 interns across the investment, operations, and client service teams. These interns come from well-known academic institutions, but they are distinguished by their broad diversity of backgrounds and skills.

Our Program

Our internship program offers students an opportunity to learn key aspects of the investment  management industry, through both observation and hands-on experience. It also provides networking opportunities that allow interns to make connections that may help launch their careers.

The program includes:

  • Information sessions
  • Training and coaching
  • Mentoring opportunities
  • Social events

The program concludes with each intern delivering a final project and presentation around a topic of their choosing.

This Year’s Class

As a global investment management company who seeks innovation, we believe it is important to select interns with a broad set of talents and experiences, as well as strong language skills. For example:

  • The intern class is 57 percent male and 43 percent female.
  • 50 percent of interns identify as people of color.
  • Two are international students, hailing from South Korea and Vietnam
  • 72 percent speak more than one language, including Chinese, French, Hebrew, Italian, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, Tagalog, Twi (commonly spoken in Ghana), and Vietnamese
  • In addition to finance and economics, the class includes interns focusing on biomedical engineering, computer science, cybersecurity, environment and sustainability, political science, and French.


Over the long-term, the program has enhanced our hiring pipeline and built university relationships that help us broaden our talent pool. Cultivating this rich vein of future talent is a key aspect of Sands Capital’s mission to add value and enhance the wealth of our clients, with prudence, over time.
