"The best thing at my work is the international and fast-paced working environment"
As a sales manager I hold independent responsibility for a client portfolio and make assessments in connection with the performance of specific tasks.
My own description
I work in FX & MM sales mainly speaking to Finnish corporates. I handle the daily foreign exchange flow of my customers as well as help them to identify their foreign currency risks and construct suitable hedging solutions for them. I work in close contact with our Research and Advisory & Solutions teams to be able to analyse our customers’ risk profiles comprehensively and ensure a top-notch service. On the money market side, I act as an intermediate between issuers and investors, aiming to match the demand and supply. In addition to this, I construct different deposit structures to boost up the low interest rates.
Outside my job
When I am not at work I spend time with my friends and do a lot of sports. Whenever possible, I also try to make as much time for travelling as I can.
I started as an associate sales manager in the FFP programme in the spring of 2012. After the summer, I continued working part-time while finishing my studies at the Aalto University School of Business. Now I’ve been working full-time since the summer of 2013. I’ve been a part of the FX/MM Products team the whole time, however, moving between different tasks inside the team. I’ve worked with smaller retail banking customers, then transferred to take co-responsibility for the money market business and recently I’ve received my own portfolio of corporate customers. During these past couple of years, I’ve been offered new responsibilities and been able to develop and challenge myself constantly.
I feel that I’m encouraged to reach out to my career goals and my personal development is well supported. In addition to the constant development, the best things at my work is the international and fast-paced working environment and my colleagues, who make working fun even at the most hectic times.
