Role Description

An insight into the world of Asset Management. Topics covered included Equity Research, Multi-Asset Investing and Fixed Income.

    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • First day was mostly around Equity Research and a project based on that. Second day was centred around multi-asset investing. Then the third day was about fixed income with a small project on that as well. Throughout the week we had other sessions with CSR teams, well-being teams, graduate panels, affinity groups etc.


    Skills

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I’ve learnt an immense amount in such a short period of time. I’ve learnt a lot about the asset management industry in general, and I’ve also gotten to experience the culture at Fidelity International. Coming from a non-finance background, I also learnt a lot of technical knowledge that will help me throughout my application cycle.
