Teemu Rantamo (27)
I recently graduated as M.Sc. having Strategic Finance as my major and Analytics as minor. Currently, I work as Assistant Controller in Markets & Treasury Financial Control in a team called Processes & Implementation.
My team is responsible for developing and maintaining processes and ensuring data is available to other teams in the unit for controlling and reporting purposes. My responsibilities vary between daily reporting and development tasks. My first developing projects were concentrated on providing data visualizations to managers’ KPIs before moving more towards automatization tasks. I have, among others, fully automated one specific bond amortisation procedure from the scratch with Python, reducing manual work from multiple hours to zero. One example of my daily reporting responsibilities is to provide global trading reports to Markets’ leaders to summarize how the PL has developed.
While working in middle office, I have raised my technical competence to the next level which I find very beneficial. SQL, VBA and Python are in my daily usage and combining technical work to the fascinating, ever-changing financial markets, is something I really enjoy. Furthermore it has also been interesting to discuss and interact with more senior and extremely professional team members about how various challenges and issues could be solved.
