Oxygen Capital

Summer 2019

Position: Finance Intern
Student: Economics Sophomore

As a prominent member of the commercial real estate investment sector of Barcelona, Spain as well as Iberia as a whole, I was exposed to a variety of personalities and experiences.  Often, I worked with Microsoft office to log and maintain information in databases and personal storage files. In addition, I would take the bus to visit properties that Oxygen has investments in to confirm the rate of progress agreed upon before work began. Then, after visiting the site I would compile any information or pictures I collected on this trip. Using this data, I would create a PowerPoint presentation to be presented to investors the next day either by myself or by my boss, Alex. My usual work schedule in Spain was from 9:00AM-2:00PM and from 4:00PM-7PM. However, my boss would often commend my work from the morning and allow me to head home for the day around 2:00PM after we had lunch together. In addition, I was also able to use some prior coding knowledge I had acquired through classes at UT and in High School. I utilized these skills to completely revamp the user interface and client information sections of the Oxygen Capital website. This was very interesting for me because my primary usage of my coding knowledge had been used through excel and excel related tasks at my prior internships in the field. For example, I had previously worked at another commercial real estate investment firm in Dallas, Texas where my skills had not been utilized in this way.
