New York, Week 13 – Homeward bound

Aidan Lundy

Our secondment here in New York has come to an end.  We all worked very hard to ensure our audits were completed by the deadline and now that it has past, “busy season” here in the US comes to a close.  The past two weeks were spent wrapping up all our jobs and processing the final few comments on our files.

Hard to believe, it is time to leave New York already.  We have had such an amazing time here and experienced so much with trips to Madison Square Gardens, Yankee Stadium, Washington, Philadelphia to name a few.  We have learnt so much and made great friendships during our secondment, both with the New York staff, and the South African secondees.

New York, Week 12 – Deadline week

Joey Halligan

This week, the audit of a large hedge fund I had been working on for the past month has been finalised before the deadline of March 31st – it was a great learning experience which helped a lot when I began to work on other clients.  I am now working on completing the audit of a private equity fund that has a deadline of mid April, which should keep me busy until the end of our trip.

During the week, Aidan and I decided to make a trip to Chelsea Piers to try out their 4 tier driving range, which had been recommended by some of our fellow secondees.  It’s safe to say that our golf games could do with some improvement, but it was an enjoyable evening with some great views over the Hudson river.
