What convinced you about this program?
I knew early on that I would work in sell-side equity research as it combines the more analytical aspects of in-depth company research with client and management interaction. I joined Vontobel in particular, because our Brokerage business consistently ranks as the top equity research team in Switzerland and it would allow me to learn from the best.

What has been your personal highlight in your program so far?
My colleagues made sure I felt part of the team right from the beginning by depending on me to contribute to a new real estate sector report. I was also positively surprised by how close we are to the companies we cover, as I get to converse with top management on a weekly basis. In general, the learning curve has been very steep and hasn’t flattened off since I started, as my team gives me plenty of opportunities to learn something new every day.

What is your advice for anyone interested in this GTP?
Be curious, ask questions, bring in your own ideas and take ownership of the work you do.
