Over the past 5 years, we’ve noticed that in order to succeed and further your career in the financial sector it is becoming ever more important to possess a specific skill set. Our professionals have pooled their experience and have designed a Young Professionals Program where reflection and promotion of personal development is key. We help to prepare (freshly graduated) quants, ensuring they become indispensable to members of the financial sector. By working four days week on a project and spending one full day working alongside a supervisor, these graduates are given a flying start and benefit hugely by this mentoring project. This guarantees a rapid improvement of their particular skill set within the first few months. For example, by learning how to design and develop specific models, carry out stress tests or scenario analyses or learning how to interpret the impact of new regulations, you add value where others cannot. The focus is set on developing that set of particular skills. This provides you with an opportunity to excel in your given field and also the ability to add value in the short term.
