I worked for ConvergEx for over 10 years, I was able to have the opportunity to growth my career with moving into various different departments and continuing to learn the different facets of the business. My last 8 years were within one department - Global Transition Management. Our typical day consisted of working with our clients to restructure their investments. I provided continuous communication starting with conference calls to begin the trading strategy timeline, performing pre-trade analysis on the given portfolios, liase with the multiple trading desks for execution of the portfolios and developing a post trade analysis to report the transition performance.
I worked within a team of 9 in NY, but spoke with colleagues all over the world - London, Sydney and Dubai. Team work was very important within the group, constant communication was needed. I enjoyed working with all my colleagues.
