Role Description

This programme provided me with an insight into the organisation, more specifically its Equity Research, Multi-Asset and Fixed Income divisions, as well as the culture of the company and CSR initiatives.

    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • The insight consisted of presentations from the Equity Research, Multi-Asset and Fixed Income team followed by daily case study workshops that required us to do group presentations. The presentations were followed by Q&A from Fidelity employees which also gave us feedback. There were also opportunities to network, as well as presentation from employee networks and sustainability at Fidelity.


    Skills

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I have learned a great deal about the asset management industry and have thoroughly understood the daily work of a graduate analyst through the case study workshops. I was able to improve my teamworking and communication skills in a casual and friendly environment, which I consider a unique opportunity given that the exercises simulate an assessment centre.

    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • I found the presentations very insightful and detailed without making me feel out of my depth. The content was appropriate for me as I knew almost nothing about the industry, so grasping the concepts through presentations and then putting them into practice through the case study presentations was very enjoyable.
