"It might sound a bit like a cliché, but not two days are the same"
As an analyst in Investment Solutions I’m ultimately responsible for the secondary market for our products that we sell to brokerage firms and institutions. It’s also my job to make sure that our customers receive daily and monthly valuations, and that all elements are in place in time ahead of issuing a product.
My typical workday
My day always starts with me sending out valuations of our products so that our customers can retrieve them. These are then updated throughout the day depending on how much the market fluctuates. I also receive and execute deals from our customers when they want to sell back a product, so you could say I’m the link between our customer and the trading desk.
Also, I have lots of contact with our legal advisors and our execution desk regarding new and old products. It might sound a bit like a cliché, but not two days are the same. Sometimes, there is a lot going on in the market, so valuations can change quite a bit and then I’m in frequent contact with our trading desk. On other days, we might be at the very beginning of an issue, and then I might be working a lot on terms and conditions and talking to our legal advisors.
I studied economics and finance at the University of Linköping and started as a graduate here in Markets in June 2012. While I was studying I spent six months at the Warsaw School of Economics and was also involved a lot in projects besides my studies.
How I got here
While I was studying, I worked for Nordea in the branch network, and that’s when Nordea Markets caught my attention. When I saw the ad on the website I sent in an application straight away, and the ball started rolling.
Outside my job
I like working out, meeting friends and cooking. I’ve also spent a lot of my life at riding stables and show jumping venues around Sweden.
