Jamil is an intern right now with the National Securities Corporation, where he studies market conditions, regulations and industry compliance to determine possible investment strategies for clients. In particular, he focuses his research on equities in the biotechnology industry. The internship has been excellent for Jamil because he has been able to both make recommendations to NSC’s on-staff financial advisors and have direct contact with clients. Jamil preceded this position with a summer 2011 internship at the Zakir Khan Realty Group, where, among other things, he got to conduct research on more than 5,000 property listings and use appraising techniques to assign them values.
As a finance major with a minor in economics and a planned specialization in Gabelli’s new value investing curriculum, Jamil is especially interested in his upcoming Sumitomo internship because of the strengths of its credit department. “I am excited to begin working with SMBC this summer so that I can receive practical training in credit/financial analysis and have the opportunity to work on important commercial lending transactions,” he said. He also anticipates that the credit staff at Sumitomo will offer great guidance and mentorship.
Within the next five years, Jamil would like to earn his MBA in finance and work full-time for Sumitomo, Barclays, Morgan Stanley or a similar company in the area of credit risk or equity research. This summer internship is, no doubt, a step in that direction. Good luck, Jamil!
