Interview with Renzo Hunziker
Thematic Equities team at Asset Management
How did you start at Credit Suisse?
During a summer break at University, I did an internship with Credit Suisse Corporate & Investment Banking where I learned about the various opportunities and exciting entry programs the bank offers. After graduating, I came back and started my career with Credit Suisse Asset Management. My interest in asset management and the portfolio manager job was sparked by a previous position in audit and advisory for asset managers, where I got to talk to portfolio managers and learned what the job is all about. I was involved in equity analysis early on and transitioned into the full-time equity analyst role after finishing the graduate program. I was given responsibility almost from the start and quickly became part of the team.
Can you describe your role?
I'm an equity analyst with the Thematic Equities team at Credit Suisse Asset Management. I analyze companies to assess if they are good investments. I also regularly trade and meet companies as part of my job. It's a job with a lot of responsibility – it's our duty to identify the most promising opportunities to invest the money clients entrust us with. I work on our Security and Safety strategy, which invests in companies that help to make the world we live in safer, healthier, and cleaner. The position is dynamic, and you never stop learning. Every day is different with markets reacting to the macroeconomic environment, current events, and long-term trends.
We interact regularly with company management, research partners, and contacts in academia. We are the bank of entrepreneurs and we ourselves are entrepreneurial. It helps to have a can-do attitude and to be proactive. People are approachable and don't mind helping other people out, and they listen to ideas on how to improve or attract more business. I feel like there is a lot of opportunity to shape your own pathway. It is a big organization with many interesting departments.
What do you love about your job?
My job is really interesting and challenging. It keeps me thinking about the macro environment, global trends, and companies. It also allows me to realize my passion for capital markets. I love working in a diverse team with differing views, personal circumstances and levels of experience. Ultimately, I think this diversity helps new joiners fit in, contribute and feel appreciated.
It is easy to get in touch with colleagues from other teams and usually they are supportive if you need advice or help. There is great team spirit. Credit Suisse offers interesting entry positions for graduates and good internal and external training.
There are a lot of professional and social events organized by a variety of clubs and groups, like the Next Generation network for junior people in the bank. In the 3.5 years I have been with Credit Suisse, I've got to know a lot of people through this kind of event, and some have become true friends.
