The Investment Analyst Development Program at Travelers provides high-potential graduates from select universities the opportunity to work alongside industry experts and play an active role in the investment decision making of Travelers’ $70 billion fixed-income investment portfolio. Individuals on our associate analyst team have diverse educational backgrounds and grew up in many different areas across the U.S.
Travelers Investment Analyst Development Program has provided me the technical training, support and guidance I needed to establish myself as a credible investment professional, earn my CFA charter and gain admission to a top business school.
The breadth and depth of learning opportunities at Travelers' Fixed Income is truly astounding. When I started my career at Travelers, I did not anticipate the speed at which I would be expected to meaningfully contribute to portfolio outcomes. Nor could I have imagined how much access I would have to senior management.
One of the things I cherish most about my time at Travelers is the relationships I’ve formed with my Fixed Income colleagues. I am continually impressed by the level of intelligence, talent and humility exhibited by the members of this department. Moving to Minnesota without any family or friends, my fellow associates became my support system, and today, I consider many of my coworkers as my closest friends.

Coming out of college with a science background, I knew little about investments but was intrigued when I learned about Travelers’ Quantitative Analyst Development program. Since joining, I’ve had incredible opportunities to work on numerous projects attuned to my particular skill set such as running return attribution evaluations on our $30 billion municipal bond portfolio, setting up risk-modeling software for analysis of the total portfolio, and stand-alone projects that feature my previous experience in various programming languages.
The program has also driven me to rapidly expand my knowledge of fixed income investments and finance in general as I begin pursuing a CFA charter. None of this would be possible without the strong support and training I received from my talented and insightful coworkers. I am very satisfied with my decision to join Travelers’ Fixed Income Investments team.
