This year we kick off the IBC with an Investment Banking Training by Peter Whiting. He was the Chief Operating Officer of European Equity Research at UBS from 2007 to 2011. As one element of his role, Peter had responsibility for graduate recruitment and training within the Equity Research business, including the department’s summer intern programme. He both interviewed candidates himself, and oversaw the hiring decision-making process overall. Prior to taking up the role of COO, he gained some 20 years’ experience as an equities analyst, winning industry awards in his own right and leading the UK part of the top-ranked UBS pan-European small and mid-cap research team. Peter is now a non-executive director on the boards of three companies (Microgen plc, FDM Group plc and MBA Polymers Inc), and provides consultancy services to a leading global investment bank and other businesses. He continues to give talks to students at several leading Business Schools and Universities.
We would also recommend this training if you are considering participating in the IBC 2017. This session takes place on the 20th of September, a morning session in Amsterdam and a afternoon session Rotterdam. His talk will cover the following topics:
- The different roles within an Investment Bank, and the skills you need to succeed in them;
- The importance of understanding the culture within a Bank, and your chosen department;
- The selection process, including interviews and assessment centres.
The time schedule will be as stated below. During the session there will be a short break with some refreshments. Pen and noteblock will be provided.
