What makes the Barings internship program unique or different to others?

From my perspective, I had an amazing team that was willing to teach me. Coming in as interns we don’t know a lot, but the team gave me real work to do anyway. This was very intimidating at first but the support I got from my team helped me learn quickly—and I felt the tasks they asked me to do were not as difficult knowing I had a great team that was supporting and guiding me.

Describe Barings in three words.

Supportive, positive and welcoming.

“Barings backs-up what they say. It is a very supportive culture that allows people to grow and learn.”

How willing everyone is to take time out of their busy schedules to talk to us interns individually, tell us about their career and offer advice. I think we all picked up on this and hugely appreciate their insights.

What makes the Barings internship program unique or different to others?

Despite being assigned to a team, there are plenty of opportunities to find out more about other parts of the business and other asset classes through Lunch & Learn sessions, Fireside chats and more intimate networking opportunities. The Campus Recruiting team has been very engaging, organizing many events and always being in touch with us from around the world.

When you first arrived at Barings, what stood out?

My expectation was that given the size, scale and success of the organization globally, most people would be too busy for me and have tight schedules. However, at Barings, everyone, no matter their role or level of seniority makes time to talk and support you.

What makes the Barings internship program unique or different to others?

I believe the unique thing about the Barings Internship program, is that it has been designed with young talent in mind.

For example, there is a wide range of social activities and external opportunities available to us from basketball to language clubs to networking events.
