By Sanna Perälä (25) – Deep diving into business as assistant analyst at Equity Research
I work as an Assistant Analyst at the Equity Research team. I am finishing my Master’s studies at Aalto University School of Business with a major in Economics. Come next autumn, I will be in Austria, writing my Master’s thesis and completing my last courses for the Uni.
As an FFP at Equity Research, my main responsibility includes writing the morning report which is sent out every morning before the market opens. The task includes collecting various market data and writing company specific texts in Finnish, which has taught me a great deal about the stock market and Finnish companies, in a very short period of time. I feel it is an advantage that I can dive this deep into the business with just one task.
When my morning duties are done at around 10am, I typically assist our senior colleagues with their daily work; my tasks would include e.g. collecting data, writing market or company descriptions, going through news and attending client meetings.
