I have loved mathematics since I was very young, but I was wary of limiting my career options so chose to study Business Administration instead. It is ironic because mathematical skills are now central to what I do for Deutsche Bank. My academic choices have all been beneficial to my career path.
After graduating I was still eager to learn, so I decided to study Economics. I wanted to combine theoretical training with a subject that could offer a global view. I spent some time studying in Barcelona, which was good preparation for working in a global organization like Deutsche Bank.
After studying Economics the financial markets were a logical destination for me, but so was a PhD. I was in two minds. The bank was very understanding. They gave me all the time I needed to make up my mind.
The thread that links my academic interests with what I do today is a fascination with global interactions. Working in a multi-asset role for Deutsche Bank, I couldn’t be closer to the world’s financial markets, or more involved in events. And I work in a true team environment, within my division and the bank as a whole. That’s very important to me.
