My alarm goes off: Around 6:20 am.
I’m responsible for: Managing international wealth clients.
The worst part of my job: Admin and bureaucracy.
The best part of my job:
The link between stock markets and clients. It is all about a balancing act and psychology.
Normally a good session at the gym, either a class or personal trainer. Also, at least twice a month I get a sports massage. It really is a must!
What do you get up to out of the office?
When I am not travelling you can find me catching up with family and friends, sports (either watching or practising), hiking/trekking and being outdoors enjoying nature to recharge the batteries!
I’ve been in the role for:
Over 20 years, dealing with international markets.
Tea or coffee?
No question: coffee. The smell of fresh coffee in the mornings, mmmm.
Typical lunch choice?
In the past, I used to do typical readymade sandwiches. Nowadays, I try to prepare my own salads, but that’s not always the case.
What are you reading at the moment?
Dawn French’s According to Yes. I have just started reading it. I really like her as an actress and comedian, so I’m looking forward to her as a writer!
What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Falling for one of those GBK (Gourmet Burger Kitchen) avocado bacon burgers with thick chips.
What’s the biggest challenge you face in your role?
Efficiency/effectiveness – trying to maximise time juggling
and wearing different hats.
You are hosting a dinner party this evening. Who would you invite and what are you cooking?
Friends, and most likely it would be Basque food, such as squid in its own ink – delicious!
