Adel

Vincent joined Advisory Key Team as an operational financial consultant.

« I currently work for one of the largest banks in the Luxembourgish market. I’m in charge of calculating and paying the Dividends on behalf of several major fund promotors. I would say that as a Consultant I am responsible for different positions and this is a great chance to work into new roles and challenges that I would not have been exposed to if I would have worked directly for one of our clients. You usually perform the same job for 2, 4…10 years when you traditionally work for an employer and this is not often in your best interest. I believe you need to get out of your comfort zone as much as you can, you need to learn something new every day so you can progress in your career and get the best understanding you can of the business, Advisory Key provides this great opportunity. »

« Advisory Key is an opportunity to improve my career according to my capacities and objectives, to work with different international organizations on different subjects. It allowed me to understand financial issues of each company and bring the skills that I have acquired. Since January 2015, I had the opportunity to work for two clients within an international and multi-cultural environment on various assignments and matter related to the AML/KYC processes.
I had also the chance to participate to our social events like weekend in Alsace, diner in nice restaurants, biking, etc. which enables me to share my professional experience and learn from my colleagues in an enthusiastic way. »
