How to learn about different desks, products?
I will starting my S T internship at a BB this upcoming June and I would love ti if you guys could tell me how I could prepare for this, in terms of how to advance my knowledge, etc..
I would also love to know how to learn about different desks. COuld anyone tell me in detail what some in structuring would do on a daily basis? I heard only math geniuses would dare going into that desks?
For the trading desks: there are cash, derivates and ETFs
There are also the distribution desks ( sales) and management (risk management, strategy), which I am not very interested in since i heard the latter is like MO/BO work? could anyone elaborate in this. Moreover, what does someone in the prime brokerage desk does? Is it just operations work for hedge funds?
I know that that's alot of questions but I know that choosing the right desks is very critical. Does anyone have any advice to know which desk is suitable for you.
