What’s your typical day as a Treasury Junior Analyst?

- Creating weekly and daily reports providing information on market levels, technicals, and major events.

- Recording and analyzing market events to synthesize and write into a Monthly US Market report.
What is your greatest challenge and success as a Junior Analyst?
The greatest challenge I have faced as a Junior Analyst has been the learning curve of the investment industry. The Junior Analyst Program exposed me to various securities and markets and, consequently, a substantial amount of information and industry jargon.
My greatest success in the Junior Analyst program is that the team uses the tools, dashboards, and analyses that I developed for their decision-making. It’s satisfying to know that while I am learning, I am also creating value for the team.
What do you appreciate most about the Junior Analyst program?
Coming directly from undergraduate into the workforce can be daunting. Inexperienced in the working culture and industry, I appreciate the program enabling me to have different perspectives on and firsthand exposure to the finance industry in a learning-conducive environment.
