This role is a huge learning opportunity into capital markets functions and businesses. I recommend this role to anyone who is curious about the markets, has an open mind towards working with a diverse caliber of experts, and is up for a role that is different every day. Type of work involved:
- Preparing company research and analysis for meetings
- Building and analyzing spreadsheets for a portfolio of projects to support firm-wide decision-making and communication to upper management
- Creating, modifying, and presenting slide decks, graphs, and charts to internal/external stakeholder groups
- Attending meetings with regulators and counterparts in New York, London, Sydney, and Hong Kong
All team members I worked with provided on-the-job training.
My manager was one of the most experienced, supportive, and approachable managers I have ever met.
The team was very professional. They valued knowledge sharing and preferred open communication. There were various social activities for the team, including welcome/farewell socials for the intern.
It is important to do your job well, but it is also just as important to take initiative of your own learning. Therefore, learn from your team, participate in firm-wide events, and read a lot.
