A career in finance presents a great opportunity to work on challenging assignments, to work abroad, gain financial independence and a rich tapestry of sectors to establish a long career. I have been able to work across the capital spectrum, from equity capital markets, equity research sales, funds management and alternative investments e.g. hedge funds. This has provided a great opportunity to manage the many variations of client relationships who partner with these segments. My experience in finance has equipped me with a diverse and influential global network of colleagues, mentors and friends, who I continue to learn from.
