Hi TSR. Welcome to The Students Guide to Banking & Finance.
It's my mission to help as many students or frankly anybody that wants to learn about the world of banking & finance. I get asked so frequently in work to explain about the financial system, the roles within it, the many career paths & for general career advice for students starting out that I thought there might be real value in sharing it online with you all.
I love having these conversations and helping people so it's a privilege & my mission to help as many of you as I can.
I've worked in financial services for 5+ years in a range of roles including Investment Banks, Private Banks, Wealth Management, Accountancy firms & Insurance firms so I've gained a solid foundation of industry knowledge. I am a member of the Society of Trusts & Estate Practitioners, hold the Certificate in Financial Services (Trusts & Estate Planning), the Investment Management Certificate and have passed level 1 of the CFA Program.
I want to answer the questions you want to know and questions I wanted to ask when I was a student searching for my first job in Banking & Finance.
Let me know what topics would be useful and I will share with you my experiences! Cheers fam!
