What convinced you about this program?
The people and the entrepreneurial spirit. Early on I noticed that you are given a lot of responsibility right from the get-go. Vontobel is a place where you are not only given the opportunity but are expected to live up to your full potential. At the same time, there’s so much great talent at Vontobel, so help is always around the corner when you need it.

What has been your personal highlight in your program so far?
There have been so many interesting tasks that it wouldn’t do justice to the GTP to point out only one single project. Instead, the true highlight for me were the people. From your teammates up to the very senior management, everybody is extremely open and approachable. At Vontobel there’s no “I” but only “We”.

What is your advice for anyone interested in this GTP?
Do your research and get to meet the people. Be proactive and eager to learn. Find your niche.
