The central purpose of the FOGC team is to manage the business risks and controls of the front office according the prevailing risk appetite. This means that on a day to day basis I operate at the intersection of different business areas including Compliance, Operations and of course, the Front Office. It is this exposure to a cross-section of business areas, individuals and projects that I enjoy most.
At least initially, it was the industry jargon that was the trickiest to take on board, particularly in such a fast paced environment. Fortunately, Janus Henderson’s sponsorship of the IMC exam and the ongoing in-house training means that it won’t be a challenge for long!
During and after completing an undergraduate and postgraduate degree, both at London universities, I undertook a number of internships in the UK and Asia which led to this trainee opportunity at Janus Henderson. Investment20/20 opened the door to priceless industry experience and insight, as well as providing the confidence to pursue a long-term career in the investment management industry.
I was very fortunate to find both a role and a team that I could picture myself working in moving forwards. At this moment in time, my central aspiration is to do the best job I possibly can!
The chance to prove what I can do.
