This panel will introduce a new aspect of the industry: cross section between finance and technology to those students who are interested in pursuing a career in financial services. The panel shows the summer experience of working in an Asset Management firm’s media outreach subsidiary, a fast-paced environment focused on one of the fastest growing capital markets in the World, China. Since there is a recent trend of entering the “internet finance” field, the goal of panelist’s internship was to development an “online social media e-trading platform” (I know, it’s a mouthful). What are some challenges we might face when exploring a new market? Can technicians and financial strategists work together in a team environment? What are some ways to enter this field with an established user base? What can an intern do to support this process? This panel will show how these two fields come together and how asset management can also be forward-looking.
