What were your main duties and responsibilities during the course of your internship?
During the internship, I participated in all aspects of the company’s activities, including meetings with lawyers, fund administrators, accountants, etc. My main task was to compile a comprehensive study on the 15 countries including the political, macroeconomic data, a review of the regulatory regime, renewables landscape, etc.
What would you say was your biggest achievement over the course of your internship?
The work was challenging and interesting and I am very proud of the resulting study that will be genuinely useful to the firm and published in the University library as a reference tool for the dissertations of fellow students! Working closely alongside the two partners of the firm developed a keen sense of professionalism and inspired a range of possible routes and opportunities for career development after university. Getting involved in the surrounding company activities such as contributing to the investor presentation and informing the fund’s senior advisor on key policy mechanisms broadened the experience, skills and networking opportunities that I gained from the internship.
“Matt did an excellent job with the study and was very helpful in many of the meetings he attended with his knowledge of the renewables sector and the UK regulations. The 300+ page study that he completed continues to be an important reference point and marketing tool for the company” – Line Manager
