Western Asset, California, USA
This summer I worked as a summer intern in the risk management department of Western Asset Management Company in California. My responsibilities were to provide research and analysis to assess portfolio security and to determine trade allocation parameters. The coursework in QFRM provided a very solid foundation for me in this internship, including programming skills and a good understanding of the financial market. Without QFRM’s powerful career service, I would never have gotten this internship in the first place. From this summer internship, I was able to figure out my interest in quantitative research and the next direction of my future path.
