Analyst, Global Capital Markets

How do you describe the culture at the bank?

There are team members from all over the world with diverse backgrounds who all think differently, but come together to tackle tough problems on a daily basis. This sense of teamwork and collaboration is a major reason why I enjoy coming to work each day. Additionally, the culture at BofAML focuses heavily on investing in its staff by providing workshops and classes on a variety of business related topics to help you develop your skills.

In one word, how would you describe Bank of America Merrill Lynch?


There is a real sense of being globally connected at BofAML.

Do you work in a global team?

The team I work in relies on constant communication with our colleagues around the world to provide up-to-date advice to our clients. I work in the Sydney office in Australia, but we have direct APAC colleagues in Hong Kong who cover clients and execute transactions in the wider APAC region. We are also constantly reaching out to our offshore colleagues for their expertise and market insights, and I've had the privilege of meeting colleagues from the New York, London and Hong Kong offices. There is a real sense of being globally connected at BofAML.

What advice would you give to students?

To students considering a position at BofAML, I would suggest you think about which line of business interests you the most and what it is that you want to gain from the opportunity. It’s important to research what each line of business does and think how it aligns with your career goals. Finding a role that fits your career objectives and provides you with daily satisfaction makes a huge difference to the attitude which you bring to work each day.
