“Great Pacific Securities provides an abundance of knowledge in the fixed income market. Working closely with the trade desk exposed me to all the various types of fixed income securities, how they are traded, and why the figures are the way they are. You will also learn about the investment banking operations at Great Pacific Securities as they work on underwriting deals very often. The workplace culture was one that was very helpful, welcoming, and influential. ”
