Equity Research Assistant/Paralegal at a boutique, independent equity research firm.
Whilst working in Beijing, I developed a strong interest in businesses and stocks, and started broadening my skills to encompass the full investment life cycle. Gaining a basic understanding of numerous legal documents (particularly in commercial law) and investment theories has helped me to support analysts with their stock coverage and various value-added projects.
Definitely – yes! The world is your oyster, and an internship abroad can not only help you realize your interests and passions, but it can develop you as an individual. Being totally immersed in a different culture can be tough – but I learned so much about independence, myself, and my values that I could never have learned just staying in the UK.
