I originally qualified as an optometrist, but have always loved maths. I thought the world of finance sounded exciting, so I did postgrad study in finance and three years later landed a role at Watson Wyatt, which later evolved to Willis Towers Watson.
In some ways I still perform the tasks of my initial role as an investment analyst, but in a more senior capacity. However, I also cover multi-assets, global equities and work on liquid diversifying strategies. In my time here, I have also covered bonds and listed real assets. The way I use my expertise has evolved to be more external facing in that I work directly with clients on manager selection and portfolio construction, as well as helping them build their own investment frameworks.
