Asset Management and Private Banking Alumni Sharing
On 27th September, Alumni Sharing, attended by 47 young AMPB students (freshmen and Year 2) was our Programme’s first networking event. 15 alumni returned to their alma mater to interact with their juniors (師弟 and 師妹) and shared their stories at AMPB and their paths landing on their first job, including UBS, CS, JB, DB, Fidelity, Citibank, HSBC, BOCI, Robeco and Mercer, spanning from private banking, buy side investment bank, sell side asset managers, sales and trading to investment consulting.

The gathering was an enriching blend of perspectives as alumni shared their personal experiences at the University and their paths to professional success. For the Year 1 and Year 2 students, this was an insightful opportunity to listen “first-hand”, the insights from the alumni provided a realistic glimpse into what the industry demands and the potential rewards of a career in finance, especially in asset management and private banking.
They spoke of long hours, the need for continuous learning and the critical importance of building strong professional networks. They shared tips on what skills to develop, how to make the most of your time at the university and how to effectively handle job interviews.
A big thanks to the participating alumni. Your sharings have provided practical advice, inspiration and motivation to our youngsters at the very early stage of their career journey.
