Tell us about a professional achievement you are proud of, and why.
Being offered a role as an Investment Associate at Ingenious in London. I had been working as an Associate Private Banker in Melbourne and discovered a passion for investment – particularly in early-stage businesses. Moving to London was a risk – a place on the other side of the world where no one knows you, with no job offer, in the hope of a job in early stage investment.
I am proud that I stepped out of my comfort zone and backed myself in, securing the role within just a few weeks of arriving in the UK. The experience affirmed my professional interest in investing in early-stage businesses – which was a significant factor in wanting to join Burch&Co.
What about a personal achievement?
Playing water polo in the Victorian State League 1 – because this is the highest level of competition in Victoria.
Personal life motto?
“Be honest and be yourself”.
What does your typical day look like?
First up, I like to go through any emails that have come in overnight and catch up with Hana (who heads up the Startup & Capital Team). Then my day largely involves drafting or reviewing documents for clients – which may relate to capital raising, corporate governance or a wide array of commercial matters. Often a meeting or two, and keeping clients up to date on their matters.
Why do you like working at Burch&Co?
I like working at Burch&Co primarily because of the importance placed on caring about others and being courteous. Although this is such a simple thing, it’s refreshing and unique – something I really value.
I like that I am afforded the opportunity to be personable and engaging when helping our clients – without impacting upon the expectations of professionalism and excellence.
