Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

KUWAIT: KAMCO In­vest­ment Com­pany, a lead­ing in­vest­ment com­pany with one of the largest AUMs in the re­gion, and win­ner of the pres­ti­gious Kuwait As­set Man­ager of the Year Award 2015, hosted an in­ter­ac­tive job shad­ow­ing day in col­lab­o­ra­tion with In­jazKuwait. The event con­sisted of lec­tures, ac­tiv­i­ties and a cer­tifi­cate dis­tri­bu­tion cer­e­mony for the 41 at­tend­ing stu­dents.

Commerce stu­dents from the Caramel In­dian School were in­vited to the job-shad­ow­ing event that took place at the KAMCO of­fices in Al Shaheed Tower, dur­ing which sev­eral KAMCO employees rep­re­sent­ing dif­fer­ent de­part­ments ex­plained the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties tied to their po­si­tions within the com­pany. The pur­pose of the on-site visit was to in­form the stu­dents about the dif­fer­ent de­part­men­tal du­ties and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, while gain­ing insight into how spe­cific roles op­er­ate within an in­vest­ment com­pany. The pre­sen­ters used a com­bi­na­tion of in­ter­ac­tive lec­tures and ac­tiv­i­ties to en­gage the young tal­ented minds.

Faisal Hasan, KAMCO’s Chief Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Of­fi­cer, em­pha­sized the im­por­tance of col­lab­o­rat­ing with or­ga­ni­za­tions such as In­jaz-Kuwait that take ini­tia­tives in lead­ing, sup­port­ing and ed­u­cat­ing fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. He said that early prepa­ra­tion pro­vides insight to the younger gen­er­a­tion that would pos­i­tively af­fect our so­ci­ety in the fu­ture. Hasan added, “In­jaz-Kuwait skill­fully pro­vides as­pir­ing stu­dents with the nec­es­sary tools and real-life ex­pe­ri­ence they need in or­der to im­prove their chances of hav­ing a suc­cess­ful fu­ture ahead. We would like to rec­og­nize In­jaz-Kuwait for their con­tin­ual sup­port to­wards lo­cal youth de­vel­op­ment and the pri­vate sec­tor.”

“We be­lieve that the job-shad­ow­ing event helps in pro­vid­ing the young tal­ented can­di­dates with a

bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of our day to day ac­tiv­i­ties within the de­part­ments. They get a feel for some of the daily du­ties we carry out within KAMCO, while hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to ask an ex­pe­ri­enced em­ployee. We are pleased with the out­come of the event and will con­tinue to in­vest our time and ef­fort in cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity ini­tia­tives that fo­cus pri­mar­ily on ed­u­ca­tion and lo­cal youth de­vel­op­ment,” added Hasan.

KAMCO ac­tively par­tic­i­pates and spon­sors var­i­ous events that tar­get fresh grad­u­ates in search of tal­ented can­di­dates that fit the com­pany’s cri­te­ria. KAMCO has par­tic­i­pated in spon­sor­ing and host­ing achieve­ment cer­e­monies to rec­og­nize and con­grat­u­late those who have suc­cess­fully com­pleted their CFA cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. The com­pany also col­lab­o­rates with non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tions to par­take in the de­vel­op­ment of the lo­cal ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem, in or­der to pro­mote youth de­vel­op­ment. Th­ese ac­tiv­i­ties fall un­der KAMCO’s cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity agenda to sup­port and im­prove the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor.
