Praktikum, 19.07.2021 - 20.08.2021

My name is Leopold von Habsburg-Lothringen and I have recently just finished a five week internship at Fürstlich Castell’sche Bank, Credit-Casse AG in Würzburg. From the beginning everyone was extremely nice to me and encouraging. Everyone was calm and humble yet still hardworking. Everyday I was taught and explained the working process of the bank as well as financial tools that each employee used to complete their job.

Working in the asset management department I was taught client-side communications, as well as the management process and software used to organize everything. I felt what was truly fascinating was learning how innovative everyone was. The banking industry is ever changing and it was clear people took their job seriously to keep the bank innovative and moving forward. After researching into digitalization, private markets and programming technologies the bank helped me gain a foresight into the changes going on as we speak. I further managed to open this horizon during my time in the fund management department where again everyone was extremely kind and only wanted me to learn as much as possible. In this department I gained an insight into research and analysis tools, the vast array of automized organization and computing tools, as well as trading and the importance of each asset and diversification. I felt from the whole experience that I truly built a lot upon my previous university knowledge, which makes me eager to keep learning more in the area.

I would like to thank very much everyone that I worked with these past five weeks, and say that you all made a profound impression on me and this exciting industry.
