8-week Internship Program
June 5 - July 28, 2023

Applications start this April.

This is a one-of-a-kind internship program revolving around global stock markets. Throughout the program, participants will be given the opportunity to learn about the inner mechanisms behind trading and investing - from the initial screening to a deeper analysis into a company’s businesses, and everything else leading up to a trade.


The goal of the program is to build a network of knowledgeable market participants and provide an avenue for young aspiring individuals to learn about an industry that is often overlooked. With highly qualified and experienced mentors providing a body of knowledge incomparable to any other internship program, the Trader’s Apprenticeship is the best way to build the confidence and skills you need to face the global equity markets head on.

The program is an initiative by founder and chairman of the COL Financial group, Edward K. Lee, to further promote his advocacy of financial literacy for every Filipino. Streamlining the almost five decades of experience of participating in global financial markets into an 8-week program is an ambitious task. However, for those dedicated and promising enough, the internship could be a steppingstone to gaining the opportunity to continuously work under the wing of the chairman.

Program Overview

The 8-week program is structured according to the FTSR framework, developed by the Caylum Trading Institute. In the beginning, each week will focus on different aspects of the framework that will ultimately culminate into a holistic approach of analysis. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from different mentors each week based on the unique expertise they offer. Throughout the program, participants are also responsible for coming up with output to asses understanding and reinforce learned theory through practice.
