“Like many graduates, fresh out of University I hadn’t decided on a career path. I gained some work experience at a couple of Investment Banks and really enjoyed the fast-paced, international atmosphere. I then made the transition to the buy side (i preferred the working hours) where I have remained ever since.
I find it interesting how the asset management industry is intrinsically linked with global events; from politics to extreme weather, anything that affects markets and their behavior is relevant to the industry. I enjoy keeping informed on current affairs, so the two tie in very well.
I appreciate the variety that my roles provide, no two days are ever the same. I am currently involved in lots of different, interesting projects at Vertem.
Outside of the office I am a keen foodie and cook and enjoy reading and yoga. When time allows, I love to get out and see the world!”
