What I liked

During the internship at Quantumvest, I felt that I learnt a lot through first-hand experience in working for CEO Taylor Roncancio. There were many opportunities for me to develop as a future member of the world of finance and a person through the mentorship of Taylor. Having first-hand experience of how Taylor dealt with clients in real time was a particular highlight for me as I was able to learn the different techniques applied when dealing with problems faced from clients as well as Taylor’s proven personal investment strategy. As interns, we also participated in a trading simulator game which helped put into practice what we were taught.

What I liked

At Quantumvest, you are given the chance to learn under Austin and Taylor, brothers that have paved their way in this industry when so many others couldn't. You will get to see the inner workings of portfolio management with the direct support and guidance of the CEO and president- which is a privilege that not many will ever get to experience. This job is not for the undedicated. It requires a lot of hard work and commitment, but in the end will teach you so much.

Be open minded and always come ready to learn the most that you can.

During my time at Quantumvest, I have gained great experience in to the world of finance. I got to work closely with the CEO and president, Taylor Roncancio and Austin Roncancio, who taught us very valuable skills like portfolio management and analysis, sales skills, stock trading, client interaction, and overall the wealth management division in finance. I got a lot of real world experience with handling retirement accounts and portfolios while being able to sit in on meetings with investors was a very invaluable experience. He expects his interns to work hard to be the best versions of themselves. He provides guidance through a positive and self motivation mindset that will help carry you in any competitive industry. Being given this opportunity has helped me tremendously in landing other roles as the finance world is incredibly competitive and the skills I have learned will carry on to any future opportunity.

What I liked

The internship was a great opportunity for me to gain exposure into the hedge fund and asset management industry. I've learned so much within this internship, from portfolio management to client relations. My understanding of the financial world was able to flourish here, and I would recommend it to any student looking to breakthrough and gain more experience in the industry. The highlight of the internship to me had to be working closely with the CEO and President of the company throughout the program. They've taught me so much about both the industry and life, and took on a strong mentorship role to me and my fellow interns.

What I liked

This internship was a great way to get me introduced to working in finance. I learned a lot of valuable skills including technical analysis and sales. Throughout the internship I participated in a trading course and manage your own portfolio to compete against other interns. This gave me experience in portfolio creation and management, and I have been able to effectively use this outside of the internship. Having little experience before coming into this internship, learning directly from the CEO and President was very valuable. Learning from their past experiences allowed me to understand what a future career in finance entails and what it takes to make it.

Advice

Be prepared to work hard, the internship is fun but you need to be able to get your work done efficiently.

What I liked

Quantumvest truly changed my life for the better. This internship not only taught me skills & relationships that will last a lifetime, but also helped me earn my dream summer internship with Citi doing advisory. Taylor, CEO of Quantumvest, was a direct mentor & helped me develop my mind & skillset to be successful in finance. Through hard-work & self-belief, this internship was highlighted with a pitch to a billion dollar family office. This pitch would help me get direct experience in a client facing role, an opportunity someone in college will rarely experience. The pitch was a massive success, and helped Quantumvest secure over a million in funding. While my time at Quantumvest is coming to an end, this experience & lessons learned directly helped me land my dream summer internship at CitiBank (where I will be making tens of thousands of dollars as a summer intern & a six-figure salary starting out of college). I can not thank Taylor and the Quantumvest team enough for giving me the ability to break into high-level finance and teaching me what it takes to make it as an adult. Again, I speak the highest praises for this company & CEO.

What I liked

My time at Quantumvest was an enriching experience. Mr. Roncancio values punctuality, self-motivation, and determination in interns. He expects his interns to work hard and be the best version of themselves. Responsibilities of this internship included reaching out to clients, creating pitch decks, and researching equities. Interns may also attend off-site client meetings with Mr. Roncancio and learn how to make it in the asset management industry. Mr. Roncancio provides guidance and maintains a positive, energetic office environment. This opportunity provided valuable insights into financial markets, sales, and client interaction. Being able to network with previous Quantumvest interns was extremely valuable, as many work fantastic jobs after the internship and are more than willing to connect, coffee chat, and help with other internship and job opportunities.

What I liked

Not only did this internship serve as a key stepping stone to obtain my first paid internship in the Finance world with PwC, but I also gained lots of invaluable experience about portfolio management and client interaction within the Wealth Management division. Coming into this internship, I had limited knowledge about how a private wealth management firm was run, as well as limited knowledge about client interaction and portfolio management. During my time with Quantumvest, I learned about various technical and fundamental indicators that help with entering and exiting trades on various securities like stocks and ETFs directly from the CEO of the firm. This type of mentorship is truly unique, and I can confidently say that shadowing Taylor on his day to day tasks on top of the mentorship he provides is an experience you will get no where else but Quantumvest. Furthermore, I gained in depth knowledge about how to field new clients for the firm, as well as maintaining interaction with these clients. Most importantly of all, though, I feel like I've learned a lot about how to carry myself as a person going forward. Taylor is a great mentor and has taught me a lot about how to be professional, be punctual, and be great at what you do. All in all, this internship has been great for me both personally and professionally.

Advice

Be receptive to criticism. You will make mistakes as an intern, but it's how you react to these mistakes that truly matters. Also be willing to work hard, and you will gain a network of connections that will serve you a lifetime. Its like being part of an elite club of like minded individuals in finance, who will help you get your next internship or even job.

What I liked

At my time with Quantumvest I liked the ability to learn form both the president and CEO as they taught me about sales and trading. We went through a trading program that taught technical analysis and presented on multiple stocks that looked like they could be good in the short and long term. We also worked heavily on sales in which we would call up perspective clients and try and help them with their retirement.

I would advise those looking at this internship to be ready to work hard and be willing to learn.

What I liked

The main thing I enjoyed while interning at Quantumvest was the mentorship. Austin Roncancio was amazing at breaking down the financial markets and how the finance industry worked as a whole. I learned how to use technical data to evaluate investments, how to create investment strategies for investors, and many other essential skills. My financial knowledge before was very basic, but with the help of the leadership at Quantumvest, I can now confidently move more into the financial world.

What I wish was different

Overall there were not much of anything I would change. The only negative is that it is unpaid but that was made very clear before starting.

Advice

I would say to be ready to work and be coachable. You will get a ton out of the internship if you put fourth the effort.

What I liked

This internship has prepared me for a successful career in finance. Going into this internship I didn't know much about the industry. If you are looking at entering the investment space or becoming a financial advisor/planner you will learn concrete skills that will benefit you. I had little experience in investing and now I can chart stocks and am able to analyze various investments. Working for the CEO and President was great. There is a comprehensive learning platform that teaches you technical analysis. The interns participate in a trading simulation where we can apply the knowledge in a realistic setting. This is fun but also teaches you how to manage a portfolio. I got to meet clients and gain valuable relationship building skills. I feel like I am ready to begin my career in finance and understand how to get clients and keep them. I highly recommend this experience.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had this experience sooner in my college career.

Advice

Ask questions and be curious. This is an opportunity for you to learn many tricks of the trade. There is a lot to gain from this experience so dive in, have fun, and keep a good attitude.

What I liked

This internship was an amazing stepping stone for me into the world of Finance. I learned what I should expect moving forward in my career and if this is the field for me. It was my very first internship and it was a great choice because I learned to be punctual, detail-oriented, and got a feel for the real world that lies ahead. I gained and built many skills for example sales, which I learned is one of the most important skills that people who work in Finance should be strong at. We learned how to change tones depending on the situation, how to ask questions to understand the client’s needs, and how to provide solutions to those needs so that the client would consider working with our firm. Another skill was managing my own portfolio on a website called Wall Street Survivor where we had a competition between interns. The simulation allowed us to compete and see who managed the best portfolio at the end. The CEO and President, both helped us throughout the internship and gave us all the information and advice needed to succeed. If you are willing to put in the effort, this internship will equip you with many skills to have a bright future in the finance world.

Risk management is the most critical part of trading - making sure capital is conserved and not at large risk of being lost naturally makes it much more likely for a trade to be profitable.

What I liked

This was my first professional experience in the finance industry. I am an atypical case as I actually found the company through twitter and made conversation with the CEO to see if I'd be a good fit. So, off the bat, I like that the company was willing to give me a chance even though I didn't go about the hiring process the "normal" way. I enjoyed all the other guys that were in here as well. Everyone is on the same mission so having a good group of guys doing the same work as you puts you in the right headspace. I learned a lot about the business but moreover received personal mentoring on how to be a better version of myself, which is invaluable coming from someone who has the results I want in my career. As the saying goes, I don't take advice from people less successful than me.

Be ready to work hard. It a fun environment but remember the mission. You will get along with the other guys and work together, and make valuable connections for down the road.

I was part of the fall semester intern class so I only had 3 days of work a week. With such great hands on learning I do wish that I could have worked more days.

Work hard and try to learn as much as you can. Its a great experience and opportunity.

What I liked

Great way to learn about the wealth management business. You get to work directly with the CEO and get to see a lot of insight into actual logistics of the business, not just the stuff you learn in school. Great way to improve on your sales skills since you spend about half of your day cold calling clients (the other half is spent either trading or helping with analysis). Sometimes we'll go out and actually meet the clients in person which is fun. Also get a good introduction into technical analysis based trading.

What I wish was different

Advice

If you can, try to make it 3 days per week instead of 2, because the days can get pretty long.

This internship with Quantumvest was great in terms of breaking into the world of finance and wealth management. From day one, we as interns got exposure to the inner workings of a successful advisory firm, from client procurement, to actual portfolio management, to learning about fundamental and technical analysis techniques that are utilized in this space to make investment decisions. My knowledge of investment strategy, as well as what it takes to run an advisory firm was day and night following my internship with Quantumvest.

It would have been nice to hear more about how previous interns succeeded within their role at this company.

As long as you are willing to work hard, and ask plenty of questions, you are given you the tools you need to make this internship one that will allow you to learn & thrive. You will get from this internship what you put into it.
