Ramsey Crookall is an LSE-registered stockbroker in the Isle of Man. They provide investment management services, stock brokerage, trust management and retirement services to a large and traditional client base from their premises on Athol Street, Douglas.
For two months, I worked in the compliance department on a digitisation operation to add, update and delete client profiles from a paper filing system to a computer-based one. Unlike my other experience that was heavily IT-centric, my financial internship at Ramsey Crookall provided me with valuable insight into the business world of money management.
Towards the end of my internship, I was invited to the trading floor to see the operations of a stock broker. Interesting to me was the huge reliance financial services have on bespoke and highly customised IT – something I never realised prior.
Skills I gained
- KYC and compliance
- Data digitisation
