A Day in the World Bank Treasury: Sezin, Portfolio Manager

What do you like most about the World Bank's working culture?

Working at the World Bank has been an extension of my educational experience attending international schools. I appreciate how the World Bank values world citizens, intellectual curiosity, and teamwork.

Why did you join the World Bank?

I wanted a career in finance at the World Bank. In 2011, as a recent college graduate of economics and finance, I was one of the first hires for the World Bank Treasury in Paris. I valued the impact of investing for the World Bank: these investments ultimately benefit countries, societies, families, and children.

If you could rewind, what would you have told yourself on Day One?

Learn as much as you can from the most experienced colleagues and get involved in many World Bank seminars, activities, and guest-speaker events.

What teams do you work with the most?

I work very closely with a range of teams, departments and VPUs across the World Bank, including the ALM, Funding, teams within Treasury Operations, Credit Unit and Accounting.
