> Why did you apply for the Julius Baer Graduate Programme?

Having finished my studies, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the private banking industry. My goal was to start my career within a bank which has a relevant if not dominant market position. Compared to other graduate programmes I preferred the Julius Baer Graduate Programme as it offered the possibility of an international assignment which at the time was not possible in most other banks I evaluated.

> What do you like best about your function?

I started as a junior relationship manager, where I assisted the Market Head Switzerland serving his clients. At the same time, I also supported him in market management related activities. With this dual role, I was given the chance to learn the daily job of a relationship manager and in parallel to quickly understand how the Bank was set up and to meet key people in the organisation. I especially appreciated the set-up with a senior relationship manager being part of my team, as this allowed me to benefit from his wide experience and know-how.

> Which career path did you choose after the Graduate Programme?

Having come back from Singapore I was given the opportunity to join a very experienced key clients team responsible for the Swiss market and to become a relationship manager. Working together with experienced relationship managers, assisting them with their clients and gradually building up my own portfolio was and still is how I am growing into the role of a relationship manager. I'm grateful for the different opportunties the Julius Baer Graduate Programme offered me.
