       在校所學主要是衍生性金融商品相關課程,包含商品評價模型、量化分析以及風險管理等領域。從當中培養出對於期貨、選擇權學習的熱忱、專業知識與能力,並計畫未來能朝相關領域就業與發展。暑假前夕,因緣際會在元大金控網站上得知針對研究生的專案實習機會,再加上對於所列之專案研究主題深感興趣,就立刻著手報名了。參與專案研究實習,不僅是為了能活用所學,最大動機是希望能藉由親身接觸期貨實務,可以對於自己目前所擁有的知識與能力不足而有所認知,畢業前持續充實自己,提早為就業作準備,讓自己成為即戰力。

       當時參與之實習計畫是一人負責一項專案研究,並由部門主管擔任督導,從旁協助完成研究專案,並在實習結束前每人上台發表研究成果,發表後接受金控、各子公司長官及學術界教授的評比。我所負責的專案主題是有關期貨與選擇權於數位金融的應用,研究方向是藉由計量方法開發出能分析期貨、選擇權波動的量化工具,並結合金融科技。

       幸運地於實習期間認識了綜合企劃部與風險管理部的主管;在研究過程中,兩位主管皆熱心親切地指導,傳授實務經驗上不藏私,給予許多深具幫助的回饋。風險管理部主管在應如何結合期貨、選擇權實務於研究方法上給予許多協助,提供交易期貨、選擇權應留意的重點,並強化研究成果之實用性;綜合企劃部主管指導應如何製作出同時能吸引觀眾目光並兼具專業性的出色簡報,也在報告技巧上給予許多受用的建議。部門主管們的專業與耐心都令我印象深刻且深懷感激。

       實習期間除了完成負責之專案研究,也接觸了期貨、選擇權的風險管理實務。風險管理部主管帶領風險管理團隊建立了市場資訊資料庫,並以程式自動化為主的控管模式,且不吝於在期貨、選擇權交易實務上分享深具專業的分析看法。雖然因為是實習生身份,所接觸的層面不多,但短短兩個月的實習期間讓我發掘到自己對於風險管理的興趣與學習動力。實習後,我更以考取風險管理師(FRM , Financial Risk Manager)證照為目標努力,讓自己在就業前充實風險管理相關知識。相當幸運地,在畢業後幾個月,碰巧看到元大人才招募網站上期貨風險管理部徵人的消息,並毫不猶豫地投下履歷。

       實習時間雖然短暫,但經驗無價,很高興風險管理部的主管依然記得也認可我的表現並錄取我成為元大期貨風控團隊的一員。

       My coursework at school focused on financial derivatives, covering topics such as pricing models, quantitative analysis, and risk management. I developed an interest in futures and options while working hard in acquiring knowledge in this area, hoping to pursue a career related to futures and options. Before summer vacation, I learned about Yuanta Financial Holdings’ internship program for graduate students on its website and submitted my application at once. This project research internship not only helped me apply what I have learned in school, but also gave me a chance to acquire hands-on experience in futures trading and recognize the inadequacy of my own skills and knowledge. This was a good opportunity to prepare myself for the workplace before graduation, so I could be more “battle-ready” when I start my first job.

       Each intern in the program was assigned a research project and supervised by the department manager. Everyone had to present the results of their research at the end of the internship, which was evaluated by senior managers of the company and university professors. My research was on the application of futures and options in digital finance; using financial technology, I developed quantitative tools that analyzed the volatility of futures and options.

       I was very lucky to be acquainted with two managers from the corporate planning department and risk management department. While working on my research, these two managers were earnest mentors and offered their knowledge and expertise without holding back. Their feedback was always helpful. The manager from risk management department assisted me in coming up with a research method that combined futures and options practices, pointing out key areas I needed to pay attention to. The manager from general planning department taught me how to make presentation slides that looked professional and were likely to grab the audience’s attention; he also gave me tips on how to improve my presentation skills. I was very impressed by and grateful of the professionalism and patience of these two managers.

       During the internship, I completed a research project and acquired hands-on experience in futures and options. Under the guidance of the department manager, the risk management team built a market information database and automated programs to manage risk. The team also was very generous in sharing their professional insight in futures and options trading with me. As an intern, the things I worked on were limited, but in these two months I discovered my interest in and passion for risk management. Because of this internship, I decided to work toward acquiring a Financial Risk Manger (FRM) certification, boosting my knowledge in risk management before graduation. Luckily, a few months after graduation, I came across a risk management job posting on the Yuanta website and submitted my application without hesitation.

       It was a short internship, but the experience acquired was invaluable. I am glad that my hard work was recognized by the risk management manager and I was able to join the risk management team of Yuanta Futures as a full-time member.
