WE JUDGE IDEAS BY
THEIR MERIT

Not their pedigree

At Weiss Asset Management, we have an uncompromising commitment to rationality. We value integrity, intellectual honesty, creativity, entrepreneurialism and continuous learning and improvement. We believe that by understanding our mistakes, we make progress. Our culture is more important than any individual and more persistent than any strategy.

WE SEEK TO COMPOUND BOTH INTELLECTUAL AND FINANCIAL CAPITAL

We must innovate to outperform

For more than 25 years, Weiss has developed proprietary value-based investment strategies designed to deliver high risk-adjusted returns to our investors, who include charitable foundations, pension plans, endowments, hospitals, government entities and private investors. We manage hedge funds and institutional accounts.  We work collaboratively to solve problems, and to identify undervalued assets through deep fundamental research, statistical analysis and an analytically rigorous approach to decision making.

Integrity
WE ACT ETHICALLY. PERIOD.
Integrity

Our test is simple: If we wouldn't be proud describing our work to our family and friends or reading about it in the newspaper, we won't make that investment.

Learning
WE ARE LIFELONG LEARNERS.
Learning

As our company expands, opportunities for teaching, growth and mobility multiply. We encourage everyone to share their knowledge. Our internal Wiki on all things Weiss helps us retain institutional knowledge, repeat profitable transactions and learn from our mistakes.

Mentorship
OUR PEOPLE ARE OUR FUTURE.
Mentorship

We typically hire recent graduates and post-graduates who have great raw ability and potential, but haven’t developed the relevant skills yet. We put tremendous effort and resources into teaching and training employees today so they can become the stars of tomorrow.

Our Team

We hire extraordinary people. We build extraordinary teams. We foster a culture of collaboration where we learn from each other, inspire one another and share in our successes. We achieve far more together than we ever could on our own.

Flat Structure
THE BEST IDEA WINS.
Flat Structure

We encourage independent thought and criticism of standard operating procedures. Ideas are judged on their merit, not on the title of the person proposing them.

Entrepreneurship

CREATORS WANTED.
Entrepreneurship

If we had simply continued what we started out doing in 1991, we would be closed today. We are constantly reinventing ourselves and finding new opportunities. Our culture focuses on developing, implementing and monetizing innovative ideas.

We’re proud to be investing on behalf of many universities and
foundations who are working on the cure for cancer, among other
great causes. It makes me proud to think that our work, and the
profits we generate, are supporting these nonprofits.

WE BELIEVE PEOPLE MATTER MOST
Our returns depend on the quality of our employees
INTERNSHIPS
FULL-TIME POSITIONS

Why Intern at Weiss?

We have a motto: “Lead, follow or get IN the way.” That means if you disagree with something, we expect you to speak up and explain why—whether you’re an intern or portfolio manager. We encourage opposing views; rigorous debate helps us find the best answers to the problems we are trying to solve.

Interns at Weiss work on interesting, important projects from the very start. You’re not assigned busywork or taking a class that simulates a job; you’re performing real work and making an impact on the firm and our investors.

We hire interns to cultivate the next generation of leaders. The Weiss Internship Program is the primary path to a full-time job at the firm. Half of our investment team members began as Weiss interns.

Learning and self-improvement are priorities here. Team members represent a broad spectrum of backgrounds and academic disciplines, bringing a diversity of perspective, which benefits us all. Everyone is encouraged to share ideas, respectfully critique colleagues and help each other learn.

Office benefits include a fully equipped private gym with daily fitness and yoga classes, omelet and smoothie breakfasts, lunch and dinner provided daily, and on-site massage therapists and haircuts. Our employee-led events team organizes outings such as Bruins, Celtics and Red Sox games, themed Boston tours, board game nights, ski trips, cooking classes, and scavenger hunts.

Partnering with investors who are working to make our world a better place is important to us. Many of our investors are not-for-profit organizations. We seek to provide them with the best risk-adjusted returns we can, which they utilize to achieve fantastic things. While we’re not working on the cure for cancer ourselves, we’re supporting organizations that are.

We are an evidence-based company that makes investment decisions based on rational thought. We treat people with respect and ideas with a healthy dose of skepticism. We want feedback from the new person in the room.

Real Impact YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS COUNT.
Your Future IT’S MORE THAN AN INTERNSHIP.
Culture of Learning WE VALUE YOUR MIND, NOT YOUR MAJOR.
Benefits HARD WORK HAS REWARDS.
Good Work WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Analytic Approach WE DON’T TRUST OUR GUT.
