JPMorgan Gets Model Intern With Hedge Fund Experience

Jun 27 2011 | 3:04am ET

Xenia Tchoumitcheva is making a pretty good living as an actress and model. But it seems that the blonde Swiss beauty is preparing for her looks to fade.

Tchoumitcheva is set to take some time off from the runway—and from her gigs as spokesmodel for the likes of Burger King and Audi—to intern at JPMorgan Chase this summer. It's not Tchoumitcheva's first financial gig, either: She formerly interned at hedge fund Duet Group in London, as well as at Merrill Lynch.

The leggy runner-up in the 2006 Miss Switzerland pageant, who says she has been "compared to a young Brigitte Bardot" on her web site, holds a degree in economics and speaks five languages.

The 21-year-old has been modeling since the age of 12.
