First off, Hi!
I am new to WSO, I have always read a lot of threads on here but have only got round to signing up!
I am a first year economics student and have recently got myself 2 1/2 months work experience in the summer in London within Investment Compliance within one of the UK's largest/hedge funds
Obviously I am very pleased with this as I have been cold calling boutique banks/hedge funds for a very long time and it has paid off
My end goal however though is with Investment Banking and in particular S&T, although in all honesty I would take any role (within reason) at an Investment Bank in London.
I will be applying for all the summer internships next summer as that will be my second year and I just wondered what people's opinions were of investment compliance and whether you think its a good place to start, get some grounding within the business and hopefully put me ahead of other candidates for next year?
