  • A very structured 10 weeks internship consisting of training sessions on all asset classes in Global Data where you are presented with a run through of their day to day tasks as well as projects they work on. Of course you learn a lot about many many Terminal functions used by specific teams as well as across teams. You also work on your individual project where you are guided by you mentor and buddy and have to present you findings by the end of the internship. you also shadow with people on your team and possible perform a reverse shadowing so you consolidate your knowledge of the asset class and the team.

  • Yes, my soft skills have improved more than I expected them to due to the fact that I was in many situations where I had to start conversation with people and get their perspective narrow my research for my project. I also improved my excel skills and used excel API to filter data points and securities.

My project was very broad and I would say I spent a little too much time trying to understand the ask of it.
