“When my LBS class graduated, David Kabiller, co-founder and head of business development at AQR made an honorary fellowship acceptance speech. His advice? ‘Be curious, take risks and be grateful.’ I was incredibly moved. I was also emotional - I hadn’t realised until then just how much I’d achieved."
“I initially studied politics and law at the University of Hong Kong, before joining global law firm Linklaters in Hong Kong as a trainee solicitor. After that I took up an offer to relocate and qualify in the City, specialising in derivatives and structured products."
“In 2014, still in London, I landed a role with JP Morgan and my career shifted from law to finance. I joined the bank’s front office and became curious about the economics of deals now I was closer to the business. I wanted to learn more and take my career to the next level; it was time to expand my knowledge.
“I’ve always wanted to do multiple things so, between taking the position at JP Morgan and joining the MiFPT programme, I completed level one and two of the CFA qualification. I subsequently completed level three while at LBS."
“In addition to the MiF, I also wanted to take the English law qualification and CFA. Managing to complete them all is a major accomplishment for me. I know now I am ready for anything.”
