Mentor: Lucy Baldwin,  Managing Director at Bank of America Merrill Lynch

Why ALMP?  Through the mentoring scheme I am hoping to learn more broadly about the equity valuation methods and how it may differ depending on the company/sector and gain some advice on securing an internship for next summer. Given Lucy Baldwin’s wealth of experience in the industry, she will be the perfect person to learn from. Her experience covering the luxury goods sector is particularly interesting to me and something I am eager to learn about. As Lucy started as a junior and worked her way up to a Managing Director, I am keen to hear her advice on what she thinks were pivotal moments in her career and hopefully adopt some of her principles and practices based on that. Furthermore, I am keen to understand the implications of new regulation on the research industry.
