Going from an Msc. in Finance to Physical TradingHF
I've got a year and a half left before completing my Msc. in Finance (in Continental Europe) and I'm starting to get desperate about a summer internship.I'm in a bit of a predicament right now since BB recruiting has come and gone and I don't have much to show for it. I've wanted to get into something macro for a while and I'm starting to look wider than your typical S&T desks.
I just applied for a summer internship at two ABCD companies and I'm starting to look more into ag/metals/energy trading although ags is probably my first choice. At this point, nothing about me really screams "into physical trading" so I'm wondering what kind of opportunities I could pursue to give myself a better shot. I'm thinking of doing something related like trade finance or shipbroking and maybe making the switch later and was wondering if that's at all realistic. Any suggestions?
