By the way, you do know that no investment company leaves their exposure unhedged?

Can go Google to understand what it is very simple.

There are some who drop out; but because they do not get the placement they want. Each department has various roles, and your rotations are meant to help you decide where you want to be, and for bosses to decide if they want you.

It can turn out that nothing works out; and you get assigned to somewhere where there is a vacancy but not your desired choice.

But to your question, not seen anyone not complete the programme due to inadequate performance. If you can get in, you are probably worth your salt

Unregistered Anyone is from the accounting team? Can share with me more How's the work life balance there?

Unregistered Unsure about that but think almost everyone gets through it. Have not yet heard people dropping off at the moment.

Nobody makes you stay more than the usual number of hours - and people do go off on time. But there are many who want to stay because of the interesting work.

Interesting that you would ask that. Private deals need to be structured, and data is often limited - which means you have to work that extra hard for valuation/risk/leverage/strategy decisions.

Public is definitely higher in volume, but public-side products are either exchange/OTC, and data is freely and readily available for all insti market participants. Public ops teams are busy, but there will hardly be any structuring like in private.

Let me put it this way: you'll think and research more about PC parts when buying and assembling your own PC; as compared to just buying a ready-made from Dell
