What’s been your most memorable experience with Standard Chartered?
My most memorable experience was when I worked on a project with four international graduates. The project required us to recommend a financing opportunity that would help a transition industry client move to net zero in line with the bank’s Chapter-3 strategy and bold stands. Our team recommended an opportunity within the Electric Vehicle (EV) Market. Of course, we had to initially deliberate on different plans, explore the feasibility of the plans, agree on the best plan and then sell idea. This required a lot of background work and research, but it was exciting!
What drew you to a career in banking?
I've always liked numbers, so it was either Accounting or Banking/Finance for me. I wanted something that would fit my personality as an enthusiast motivated by different challenges. Banking seemed to fit perfectly.
