Meet Sarika Parmar
I knew that I wanted to undertake a secondment in Asia during my training contract and was excited to be able to make it out to the Singapore office to sit with the highly regarded Assets and Structured Finance (ASF) team. The Singapore office was incredibly welcoming and supportive, and I even arrived in time to move into our new office at CapitaSpring.
During my time with the ASF team, I worked on a variety of complex ship and container financings, which involved parties based in Europe, Japan and China, as well as working with other WFW offices. As the Singapore office has a smaller team, I was able to take on more responsibility and get stuck into matters quickly, which was a fantastic learning experience, and was a great way to develop my knowledge of the shipping sector.
Being seconded to the Singapore office was a definite highlight of my training contract. Singapore is a fantastic city to live in and is especially known for its incredible food, as well as being a great base to travel around the region. I hope to return soon!
