Financial Risk Hub works with professional investment banking recruiters to provide the support and guidance our students need to progress either within their current teams or to move to Front Office (Trading) or Middle Office (Risk Management) in an investment bank.
All our students receive assistance with CV/resume refining, interview prep, as well as job search strategy. They graduate from the training program well positioned for careers in all divisions within a financial organisation that require specialised financial knowledge, analytical skills and/or coding ability.
Full program candidates will also receive one-on-one CV/resume restructuring and consultation with a dedicated financial services recruitment professional that will be assigned to them. For students looking to cross over from a different industry or functional domain, the recruitment professional can help with highlighting their suitability for their target roles.
By the end of the program, every student has a portfolio* that can be taken to interviews and leveraged to impress interviewers.
*Your portfolio demonstrates the practical, real world financial risk analytics, Python and SQL skills that you learnt and applied to projects assigned to you during the course.
After completing the program, students will be able to pursue employment across the financial industry with various types of employers such as:
- Investment banks
- Asset management firms
