Mr. Rates Trader
I’m a 24-year-old trader working at a top European investment bank based out of India and have been with the bank for roughly 3 years now. During this time I have had a chance to work for 7 months in London (International exposure) and was offered a full-time position there as well (which I had to decline at that point in time due to personal reasons).

Extracurriculars: Worked with Government of India on quite a few projects targeting socio-economic development in rural part of India.
Industry: Banking & Finance

Length of Employment: 2 yrs, 9 mos
Big Life Wins:
– Promoted to Associate within one year of joining the bank (Norm is generally 2-3 years).
– During college, I have worked closely with the Government of India and have achieved results as well. For example, getting a proposal of the project worth INR 3.5 crore approved and working on the front line of it. The project benefitted at least 5 villages firsthand.
Post MBA Goal:
Post MBA I would like to pivot gradually towards building a long-term career in investing. So given my past experience and keeping realistic expectations, IB straight out of MBA, and then moving on to a buy-side investing role in few years.
