Growing Professionally and Personally – Dylan Bargar
The analyst experience at MUFG can be best defined by intense growth. When I joined MUFG’s Capital Markets group in New York in July 2016, individuals across business lines, seniority, and geography took immediate interest in my professional abilities and personal growth. My own abilities and qualifications were always a priority at MUFG. Our analyst training in London was rigorous and designed to give us each the ability to surpass our clients’ expectations and prepare us for our regulatory exam requirements. Additionally, the training was designed to prepare us for life at a global company, learning about the customs and regulations of business in each of our locations while exploring London with our counterparts from across the world. Expectations are high at MUFG, but resources are provided to help analysts rise to the challenge.
MUFG strives to be the world’s most trusted financial group, and integrity, honesty, and responsibility are extremely important. My learning experience was not limited to just an expansive financial education. I am expected to demonstrate our core values of integrity and responsibility, professionalism and teamwork, and growth daily. I was taught early the importance of becoming a trustworthy counterparty to surpass clients’ expectations and develop profound pride in the intrinsic honesty of my work. I am still challenged daily by peers to develop deep integrity consistent with MUFG’s values and expectations.
The culture of self-improvement at MUFG has been crucial to my career development. The analyst experience is very demanding at times, but MUFG has given me opportunities for legitimate development which will provide returns throughout my career. My training has included the rigorous London experience with other analysts across our global offices as well as quick lunch-time training sessions with senior bankers across our product lines concerning our clients, the detailed descriptions of many products we offer from derivatives to brokerage services, and interesting or important minutiae of global financial markets and their participants. Each of us in the analyst class was given expectations of diligent work and incessant learning, and support in this endeavour has been pervasive. Based on my existing experience at MUFG, I anticipate the next few months to be filled with even more learning, challenges, and support from my supervisors and peers at the company.
