Graduate Advisory Desk – Wealth Management

What career path has led you to an internship with Wealth Management?

I carried out all my higher education at HEC Lausanne: a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and a Master’s degree in Finance. Following a first experience of six months in an investment consulting firm, I naturally turned toward private banking.

 The Wealth Management Graduate Programme at BNP Paribas provided an excellent opportunity to discover the different professions in wealth management and to further develop my training.

If you had to define BNP Paribas in three words, what would you say?

International presence, Excellence, Training.

Being a member of one of the most important financial institutions in the world, means first and foremost working with a network of qualified professionals who seek excellence for their customers. Working within an open space makes it possible to rapidly obtain solid and diverse skills while benefiting from a flexible and dynamic working environment!


Graduate CHF Syndicate – CIB

The Graduate Program, what for?

Having previously worked in the Private Debt team of a Private Equity management company, which I enjoyed a lot, I wanted to move into a more dynamic environment, which is more linked to macroeconomics and politics. Therefore, I was looking for something in the Fixed Income space, which I found with my current position at the Swiss Franc Bond Syndicate desk.

My job provides all aspects, which are most important for me: It combines technical skills with psychology (behavioural finance, i.e., anticipation of both investor and issuer behaviour) coupled with a high amount of responsibility – in a fast-paced environment.

Why choosing BNP Paribas to start your career path ?

Working with BNP Paribas allows me to work in a European leading bank, being in daily contact with colleagues around the globe and still speak French on a daily basis.
