Internship: Investment Consulting vs Credit Risk


I’m a penultimate year student, and I’ve had summer internship offers from Mercer to do investment consulting, and Barclaycard to work in credit risk.

My aim next year is to apply to work in Barclays Wealth. My question is which of these internships is best to do given my aim? Obviously the work at Mercer is more related to Barclays wealth, but credit risk is Barclaycard is part of the same group as Barclays wealth.

I didn’t apply for an internship at Barclays Wealth as they’d already filled up all their places by the time I got round to doing it.

Your help would be appreciated on this matter.


Mercer you be a better option since its similar to Barclays Wealth.
