AIM Experience

The following are testimonials by two young AIM professionals who are taking part in the AIM Graduate Program:

"I applied for the AIM Graduate Program because I did an internship at AIM (Investment Strategy department in Stuttgart) and I enjoyed it a lot. It showed me that within AIM there are lots of possibilities to learn, work is very dynamic and people are very nice, thus I decided to stay with the company. As it was interesting for me to see what other departments within AIM are working on, the Graduate Program was my first choice.

Before the internship in Investment Strategy I did my Bachelor in Economics in Russia and a double-degree Master Program in Germany (Humboldt) and Russia (Higher School of Economics) with the focus on economics and corporate finance. I did an internship at the Russian Stock Exchange and worked as a project manager in a small Russian company.

I am currently doing my last rotation and looking back I can say that I learned a lot, developed new skills and met a lot of interesting people. It is always important to have a big picture to understand what different departments are working on, how processes are organized and how do departments cooperate. The AIM Graduate Program is a unique chance in this respect, and I can only recommend it.

In June I am going to a hub abroad for two months, which I chose to be Singapore. I am really looking forward to it! When I come back I will start working in the department where I want to stay."


Allianz - aim-se-graduate-program

"I joined the AIM Graduate Program after finishing my graduate school study in international finance, and I find the program a very good fit for my interest and aspirations. I think the program would be most suitable for those who are not only interested in investment management, but also have an appetite for insurance industry, because after all, we are managing the insurance premiums. So far for me, the four station rotation not only shows me the value chain of AIM, but more importantly, it also makes me realize that there are so many aspects when it comes to managing investments for a giant financial institute like Allianz.

Here one can gain an overview of the full spectrum from planning to execution, from strategic view to practical view. It is not so much ‘training’ as ‘on-the-job learning’, and I’ve definitely learnt a lot from each of my colleagues."
