Seelaus Asset Management Analyst Program
In July of 2021, Seelaus Asset Management launched an analyst rotation program designed to build a bigger pipeline of young women into the asset management industry, particularly from under-served communities. The program is a 12-18 month rotational opportunity whereby our analysts spend time learning all areas of the asset management business from trading and research to marketing and operations. We provide internal and external mentorship for our analysts and work closely to provide them opportunities to learn from our external vendors, banks, and broker dealer relationships, and from other small and large asset managers. At the end of the program we work as a team to find the best position for each analyst either internally at Seelaus or externally in our industry.
This program is funded through our Seelaus Asset Management Impact Investment opportunity whereby we use fees from specific investor allocations to support and grow this analyst opportunity. To learn more about this impact investment solution and others: Click here.

Spotlight on this Year’s Class:
Theresa joined Seelaus Asset Management in July 2021 after graduating from Marist College majoring in Applied Mathematics with a concentration in Biology and a minor in Economics. Theresa is an émigré from Ghana, coming to the United States in 2013 for the educational opportunity. While at Marist Theresa was on the E-board for the Marist International Student Association, a member of the Women’s Rugby Team, and an active member of the Muslim Student Association and the Asian Alliance Club. Theresa was also employed in a work-study role at the Marist Institute for Public Opinion and the Help Desk aiding students, staff, and affiliates of Marist with hardware and software issues.
Theresa’s work ethic, genuine interest in economics, and positive energy drew us to her immediately. We are thrilled to have her on the team.
Prior to joining Seelaus Asset Management in July 2021, Ekta graduated from Rutgers University with a double major in Finance and Economics. An active contributor to the Rutgers Learning Center, Ekta taught Finance, Econometrics, and Investments to her fellow students while still a student herself. Ekta was a member of the Women in Business Association and the Corporate Relations Committee for the Future Business Leader of America. She was also a member of the Management Information System Association. Ekta came to the United States in 2015 from India for her junior year of high school. She is an avid learner taking particular interest in the equity markets and cryptocurrency.
Ekta’s enthusiasm for the markets and drive to always be learning new things is truly inspirational. Her energy is infectious and we are lucky to have her.
