Meet Our Alumni
After graduating in 2015, Jonathan went on to work as an Investment Banking Analyst with Deutsche Bank Corporate Finance. He now works as a Senior Associate within the Technology, Media, and Telecoms investments team at Temasek Holdings.
In this position, Jonathan covers both Private and Public Equity Investments in the TMT space. He graduated with a double degree in Business Administration (Hons) and Economics. The biggest difference for Jonathan, between working in banking versus as an investment associate is that banking is primarily process driven. Your role is to manage the execution process. Private Equity is less concerned with the process. Jonathan says, “Once you invest in companies, your job truly begins as you embark on a three to five-year journey to monitor how your investee company is developing. In certain firms, you may be lucky enough to get operationally involved to help improve these businesses as well – Temasek is one of them.”
During his university years, Jonathan did not have a clear idea of what he wanted to do upon graduation – these only began to crystallise in his second and third year after attending several career talks and his own research that he got interested in the world of investing and decided on aiming to work in Investment Management one day.
