THE DISTRIBUTION OF CERTIFICATES TO GRADUATE TRAINEES
A fond farewell was given last week to four of KIA’s graduate trainees who returned to Kuwait after having spent three months taking part in the graduate training programme at the KIO. In the last week of the programme, members of the Executive Committee, who were also visiting the KIO at the same time, presented certificates to the graduates and learnt first hand about the graduates' development and training programme at the KIO together with their recent experiences whilst living and working in London.

THE DISTRIBUTION OF CERTIFICATES TO GRADUATE TRAINEES AFTER ACCOMPLISHMENT OF A TRAINING PROGRAMME AT THE KIO
At the end of April 2007, the KIO said goodbye to Abdul Aziz Al-Ghemlas, Abdul Aziz Al-Saleh, Anan Al-Sebihi and Haya Boudai who formed part of the seventeenth group of KIA’s graduate trainee programme. The Graduates had been with the KIO since February and returned home to Kuwait on 28th April 2007 after having successfully completed their three month training programme.
The graduates' first day at the KIO began with a series of presentations from the Equities, Fixed Income, Private Equity, Treasury and Human Resources groups. Two week rotations followed in Equities (Europe), Equities (America), Equities (Asia Pacific) and Fixed Income with one week in the Private Equity, Property and Treasury Departments at the KIO. In addition, the graduates spent two weeks on external placements with one week at Goldman Sachs and another at HSBC, Canary Wharf where they learned new skills and tasks. The graduates told us that they found their external placements to be exciting experiences. Finally, the programme culminated with the graduates being given a case study in which they were asked to construct a portfolio which provided the best return. Presentations followed with each of the graduates presenting their results individually to the KIO’s Senior Management. The graduates commented that they found their programme not only to be a valuable and rewarding learning experience but also an enjoyable one.
The KIO graduates had their photographs taken on their final day in the MD’s office and each one was presented with a certificate by members of the Executive Committee, who were delighted to hear first hand about the recent experiences of the KIO graduates and of their learning whilst on the KIO’s training programme.
