The Undergraduate Women’s Investment Network

UWIN AT A GLANCE

The Undergraduate Women’s Investment Network (UWIN) was launched in 2015, after a review of job applicants revealed that female candidates for junior level research positions at Loomis Sayles comprised only 18% of the applications received in 2014 and 2015.

The meager results inspired an innovative program and step towards progress. Shannon O’Mara, UWIN founder and Associate Director of Credit Research, designed a comprehensive mentorship and internship program at Loomis Sayles that has successfully partnered with 63 students over the last three years. We welcome another 24 students for the 2018-2019 school year.

The UWIN program offers school year mentorship and internship opportunities to female undergraduates in their sophomore and junior years that are:

  • Currently attending Bentley University or University of Massachusetts, Boston
  • Studying business, finance, accounting, mathematics, economics or investments

Mentorship Program

Selected undergraduate women are matched with a Loomis Sayles mentor to connect the educational experience to a potential career in investment management. In-office workshops include:

  • Introduction to investment management panel
  • Workshops on communications and professional development
  • Deep dive sessions on investment research and trading

Internship Program

The rotational internship program exposes undergraduate women to two investment or client facing functions among:

  • fixed income research
  • equity research
  • portfolio management
  • product marketing
  • client relationship management
