As my internship at Nordea is coming to an end, I want to sum up my experiences from the Future Finance Professional (FFP) programme, and share highlights from my job at Nordea in Helsinki.
I work in the Business Risk Control team as an Assistant Controller in Financial Risk Control (FRC). My team operates as the front office supervisory conduct risk function. During my FFP internship, I have been able to take part in controlling business risks, control development, and implementation. I have gained great insights into MiFID regulation, Know Your Customer (KYC) processes, and trade and data quality monitoring. I have also been able to develop my data management and analytical skills.
At the moment, I work alone from Helsinki as the rest of my team works from Copenhagen. Our team operates on the Nordic level which has enabled me to learn new languages while working. Working in a Nordic team has also opened great opportunities to grow as an individual and as an agile team member. I have received great support from my colleagues throughout the whole internship period which I am very grateful for.
