Enjoyment Support & Guidance Environment & Location How Rewarding Was It? Average 4How many weeks was it for?2 weeksMonthly payRM 700What did you do?
Tasks include researching on FOMC, sovereign data, trade data and FX. A lot of independence in the way to present your findings, although the mentor will advice you along the way. Work was assessed by mentors and senior colleagues, and they were very helpful. Most of the tasks given were small parts of a greater task that will be completed by the rest of the people in your team.What did you learn?
Learnt how to make use of Bloomberg Terminal, analyze data given and making use of Fitch Ratings, S&P etc. to complement your research work. Learning curve was steep in the sense of getting used to the writing lingo and style and being able to somehow give an indication of what is going to happen in the rates and FX space.Was your supervisor supportive?
A lot of support, they were very helpful and attentive when I need guidance with my work. Some colleagues were very kind and reached out to me to offer their help or advice on not only research, but the industry as a whole. The people there are well qualified (CFA holders, really smart people, can navigate Excel and Bloomberg superbly well etc.) and you will feel honored to be one of them during your internship period.What could be improved? What could you have done better?
I wish I could have stayed longer to learn more from these people. They are one of the nicest people in an investment bank that I've met.Advice for future interns?
The interview is really important (if you can't waive it) and it is really pertinent that you read up as much as possible to ace it.
