Having an educational internship in the PricewaterhouseCoopers Risk Consulting Team, I got the opportunity to help clients in identifying, understanding and managing risk. I conducted valuations on various types of financial instruments, such as interest rate derivatives, credit derivatives, FX/equity options and other hybrid structured products. Indeed, the QFRM programme provides a well-grounded preparation for such technical skills. Besides, I also performed portfolio stress testing and analysed market/liquidity risk through internal comprehensive statistical models. Although the learning curve in this internship is really steep, I could get help from my manager and colleagues at any time. I very much enjoyed the supportive atmosphere there.
