I have two questions concerning technology division inside investment banks.
First, what is the technical level expected by investment banks at the internship level? IT is not my specialty at university since i’m more specialized in maths. I have an experience of programming and information systems but this was overall secondary in my education.
Then, what proportion of IT in investment bank is support functions? My professional dream being different from programming excel sheets and graphical interfaces, I would not like to end up doing that. I know investment bank also do algorithmic trading tools and intelligent systems but what proportion of IT people do this kind of job?
Thanks for your answers
