FICC & Equites Graduate Program and IDB Analyst Program 2022 


DNB Markets is Norway’s leading investment bank with a global footprint and number 1 position in most of the products that we provide. 


We serve clients with a range of financial services and products. We are involved in key strategic and financial decisions and transactions of our clients, including mergers and acquisitions, raising equity and debt capital, and strategic advisory. We analyse financial risk tied to currency, interest rate and commodity exposure, and strive to come up with the best way to mitigate those risks. We have market leading analysts that provide our clients with insight into equities, credit, macro, and commodities. We help clients with carrying out trades in the global capital markets. 


Full-Time Programs 

We are currently recruiting into three of our business divisions for positions starting in August 2022 and for a few IBD candidates there is an option to start in January 2022. The following full-time programs are open for applications: 

  • Investment Banking Division (M&A, ECM and DCM - “IBD”) Analyst 
  • Equity Research Graduate 
  • Fixed Income Currencies & Commodities (FICC) Graduate 


You can apply to all or specific programs of your choice. The August programs begin with a joint training course over two weeks to give all candidates a broad understanding of the products and services offered across DNB Markets. The course begins with a bootcamp in Excel and financial modelling. It then covers financial markets, risk management and products typical for our FICC teams and Equity sales teams before diving into Corporate Finance and the tools of the trade of our IBD and Equity Research teams.  


After the training the candidate will be placed directly into a team with on-the-job training and real challenges from day one. The graduate journey will be tailored to the specific candidate and the division’s need at the start of the program. You will also be given the opportunity to rotate within your division to build a full understanding of the various products offered to clients and get to build a network across the organisation. 


As an analyst or graduate in Markets, you will be part of the DNB Group Graduate Program and get the opportunity to increase your network in DNB, expand your skills and socialise with other graduates. This includes introduction days, knowledge sharing sessions, off-site activities, seminars, and social events. You will have the support of a mentor with whom you can reflect on learnings, career ambitions and discuss challenges.
