Cox Capital is pleased to welcome Prudhvi Chandu of Dracut, MA as the latest addition to the UMass Lowell Internship Program. Prudhvi is a graduating senior at UML with a degree in Finance. One of the top students in his class, Prudhvi demonstrates strong analytical abilities and knowledge of several computer programming languages. His desire to learn about and understand financial markets makes him a perfect fit for Cox Capital’s Internship Program. Prudhvi’s main roles at Cox Capital include analyzing client fixed income portfolios, researching corporate and municipal bond investments, and creating research models. Additionally, Prudhvi is responsible for authoring a weekly newsletter highlighting recent economic news and interest rate movements. “Prudhvi is a very bright young man and will be a tremendous asset for our team during his time with us,” said Cox Capital Management founder Bill Cox. Finally, Prudhvi has already passed the Level I CFA examination and plans to pursue a career in wealth management.
Cox Capital’s Internship Program aims to prepare some of UMass Lowell’s top finance students for careers in the investment/finance industry. The relationship between UML and CCM has strengthened over the years as nearly a dozen students have worked with the Cox Capital investment team. Through the program, students obtain relevant experience that is typically not available in most internship programs. Further, students also have the opportunity to sit in on various research and client meetings. Over the years, alumni of CCM’s program have gone on hold finance positions at Raytheon Technologies, Boston Scientific, RSM, Navitas Credit Corp., and Axis Communications. This is a testament to the great mentorship received at Cox Capital as well as the academic discipline acquired at UMass Lowell.
