Summary of Internship
I work for UBS AG's risk management department. MY assignments usualy revolve around received bank statements and accounts, which after being transferred through differemtn programs, namely Adobe Acrobat and Excel, become faulty due to previous human error(s), or become skewed in presentation due to software differences. SInce these are actual bank accoutns, the information in them must be perfectly accurate and presentable. When all the information I have to work with is in Excel, I use Visual Basic Application to code a program that automatically adjusts the data's skewed format and verify data accuracy and consistency. Furthermore, I work with complex integrals and derivatives that involve interest rates, % yield, maturity dates, principal, etc.
