Role Description

Took part in the Women's Horizon Insight Programme. This was a combination of informative events, networking sessions and a case study.


  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • The programme consisted of 4 days in total. The first day was an introduction to Rothschild & Co as well as an "introduction to investment banking" session with Fitch learning. The following days consisted of more specific talks from the different teams at the firm as well as networking sessions, online social events and workshops. Throughout the programme a case study was done which was presented on the last day.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I definitely developed my presenting skills through the case study as well as my teamwork skills as this was done in groups of 6. I developed and enhanced a lot of my knowledge on investment banking technicals through the informative sessions and the formation session with Fitch learning. Lastly, the assessment centre workshops enabled me to refine my interview skills.
