Invest In Your Career
We provide students and interns with the opportunity to contribute and make a real impact on day-to-day initiatives, network and learn from world-class investment and business professionals, and get an up-close look at how one of the largest institutional investors in Canada operates.
Why Do A Work Term At BCI?
You are assigned meaningful work, supported by some of the most talented professionals in the investment industry. The work we do ensures over half a million British Columbians – people you probably know: teachers, firefighters, and city workers – have a financially secure future.
There is an array of training and networking opportunities available for our students, such as Q&A sessions with the CEO, knowledge sharing sessions, investment club, reading club, and public speaking club.
Victoria is situated on Vancouver Island, surrounded by ocean and mountains, while boasting the most moderate climate in Canada. Our newly built office is located downtown, surrounded by local eateries and amenities.
Note: For those coming from elsewhere, we offer a travel allowance to help with the move.
BCI continues to grow as we transform into an active in-house asset manager. We are hiring in all areas of our corporation and we often hire students from our co-op & internship program.

Mahad FarrukhMaster of Science Degree in Finance from Simon Fraser University
My internship experience with the ESG Integration team was a great way for me to experience working at a large investment management organization. In this role, I got the opportunity to develop the first carbon footprint for public equity holdings. Throughout my internship, I looked for opportunities to collaborate with other teams and lend a hand wherever possible. In this process, I took on some projects with Global Thematic, my current team. Throughout this experience, I found myself surrounded by colleagues who were always willing to contribute to my professional development.”
Liam UnderwoodBachelor of Arts Degree in Economics from Queen's University
I had an amazing experience with the co-op/intern program where I spent time with two great teams in Macro Investment Research and Derivative Operations. Both teams gave me exposure to very different but extremely interesting aspects of capital markets and investment management. The co-op/intern program as a whole provided a great bridge from school and my prior career, to becoming a full-time analyst with BCI.”

Before I started my co-op term, I was still unsure what career path to go down. My co-op supervisor gave me the flexibility to explore a variety of roles within our team. It ended up being an invaluable opportunity to discover what I enjoyed doing and what skills I wanted to grow."
