What do you do on a daily basis at work?
You often hear bankers say that there isnt quite a typical day at work - that is true, even more so when I move into different roles every few months as a Management Associate.
I do very much the same things as the more experienced members on my team. That is my fi rms way of helping me up the learning curve in the quickest time possible and showing how much they entrust their people with responsibilities. While I was in FX sales, I was a dealer for clients - picking up their calls and quoting and booking FX deals for them. At Investment Products, I liaise with counterparties to structure products for our clients. During my stint with Compliance, I had to advise businesses on how they could adhere to regulations.
What I have provided is a very brief, theoretical glimpse into each role. The reality is having to be 100% hands-on and ready to take on new challenges, learnings and surprises every single day.
Why become a banker/investment analyst?
The banking world is super dynamic, which bodes well with the pace I like to work at. Also, I wanted to be working amongst sharp minds, while always being able to be challenged in my work. Indeed, I have met many bright and inspirational leaders. Wealth Management, in particular, appealed to me because it is a topic that is very close to many peoples hearts and I get to help them make more informed decisions on what matters a lot to them. Happy to say that I have not experienced a boring moment, and dont think I ever will!

What is the most useful experience/skill you gained during your time in NUS Business that has benefi tted you till today?
The appetite for rigour. I have worked with some of the brightest minds at NUS Business, where there is a constant pursuit for excellence. This has become second nature at the workplace too, where the instinct is not to take the easiest way out but to always seek ways to value-add. Short-cuts are tempting but the desire to bring standard to your job is a lot more long lasting. More importantly to me, the most precious part of the NUS culture is that people excel humbly, and humility will always be a trait that I look to uphold amongst successes.
What traits do you think are most important for a business graduate to have?
Be likeable - that comes with humility, being genuine and communication. There are so many brilliant people around that it takes more than paper results to form a positive impression. Truth is, people do form impressions very quickly. I often hear bosses mention that hard skills can be taught
but not soft skills. While results may be impressive, people are attracted to personality ultimately. Communication skills are critical in keeping you out of trouble and very much determine how people size you up. Also, always keep an open mind and be earnest in learning from others.
What advice will you give to students considering a degree/career in business?
Go for it, and once you are in, be brave and never let anyone (or any setbacks) derail you from your path. You will discover that a degree/career in business will present endless opportunities for you Some may seem daunting, some may slip past you. However, you are the only one who can truly shape your experience. Also, never belittle the networks that you form along the way because this industry is a lot more connected than you may think. My time at NUS Business School remains one of my best memories, and it has opened roads for me. With a degree in business, the world is your oyster. The choice will be yours to make the best of it!
Go for it, and once you are in, be brave
