This hands-on experience bridged theory with practical application further enriching my academic foundation. Through challenging projects, I enhanced my programming skills and learned from an exceptionally supportive team known for their camaraderie and innovative mindset. This contributed a lot to my personal and technical growth. The dynamic environment in continental Europe’s biggest dealing room added an element of excitement to my work. This internship solidified my quant career aspirations. I highly recommend this internship to fellow students, as it offers an invaluable platform for learning, applying and thriving.

Furthermore, you will participate in various projects, where you apply specific knowledge in market risk. The most valuable things I learned are, how to use theoretical risk concepts in the real world, further extension of my knowledge on financial products, how to divide my workday and prioritise tasks, and to interact with highly skilled professionals in the biggest dealing room in Europe. As a consequence, this experience made me grow in every aspect and I would recommend to everyone that has a passion for risk management to be part of this multicultural team.
