Well it's apparently been around for ten years and the firm managing the CV submission that I submitted to (Dartmouth Partners) is a well-known recruitment firm so I'm pretty sure it's not a "Nigerian Prince" scam

Considering Dartmouth are involved it is more than likely they will be screening all CVs for the funds involved. Taking that into account, I'd reach out to Dartmouth to see what internships are available at different funds and how strong of a candidate you realistically are, rather than spending £119 pounds on it.

That's a good idea, I'll definitely try that. £119 seems steep but the names are huge and you never know whether you may get along with at least one of the speakers if you ask good questions, that's the strategy I'm going with anyway
