As I mentioned in my last post, I worked in the financial institutions group, more commonly known as FIG. FIG is one of the largest groups at MS, and the deals we worked on were some of the most high-profile and exciting ones on the Street. Being able to open the Wall Street Journal and read about deals that I was personally working on was an incredible feeling.
After my internship was over, I hung around New York City for a week hanging out with all the people I missed catching up with when I was working 110 hours a week. Then, I came back up to Boston, and left for a cruise to Bermuda. I had an incredible time on the cruise, from poker tournaments (we play a lot of poker at MIT), to just relaxing on the beach. Thankfully, we had great weather and missed the hurricane completely. One interesting tid-bit from Bermuda is that it is the center of the reinsurance industry. In fact, reinsurance is also commonly known as Bermuda reinsurance. So during my trip, where I was trying to unwind and forget about work, I was constantly reminded of all of the companies that I had done work for at MS!
I'm finally back in Boston and settled into my new house on Commonwealth Avenue. I'll finally get to meet the other MFins this week during the BBQ and I am incredibly excited. As always, feel free to shoot me an email if you have anything specific you want answered in the blog.
