What excites you the most about investment/financial markets? 

What excites me about the investment and financial industry is the opportunity to create value while making a positive impact. I am enthusiastic about the idea of using various asset classes not only to generate returns but also to contribute to a better world. Incorporating Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors into investment decisions, whilst creating value aligns with my investment strategy. The financial markets also teach one to instil values of sustainability, social responsibility, and good governance practices. It is incredibly fulfilling to know that investments can drive positive change in people’s lives, which goes far beyond just financial gains.

What advice would you give a new graduate who is starting their career?

My advice to a new graduate starting their career would be to embrace a mindset of continuous learning and change. The transition from University to the working world can be daunting. Always remember to seek out mentors and peers who can offer guidance and support, and do not hesitate to ask questions or seek help when needed. Have a strong work ethic, be professional, and support your team. Setbacks and failures are inevitable, but just like any exam in life, there is always a chance to redo it.
