Our client success is the result of teamwork. Our Relationship Managers consult globally with investment specialist colleagues to produce long-term strategies and investment choices for our clients.

What is your role at Credit Suisse?

I work in the Securities Research team as a supporting Environment Social and Governance analyst. My responsibility is to cover a very broad range of themes from Climate Change and Decarbonization to Modern Slavery as well as Tech Regulation, to name a few. I need to be on top of the most recent academic research and expert advice as well as how Australian companies are responding to different themes.

How did you discover your passions?

I am fortunate to work in a role that allows me to explore my passions around Climate Change and Sustainability. My job allows me to research these themes, identify where investment opportunities and risks emerge, and communicate my views to the investment community.

How I discovered my passions is actually quite simple: curiosity. I continually investigate what I am curious about. As a kid and now, I always loved being outside, in nature, in awe of the beauty of the world. As a result, at high school, I loved science where you learn about the natural world, but I also quickly realized that I really enjoyed economics and learning about the man-made world. At university, I could not decide which path to explore, so I chose both where I ended up doing a double degree of Bachelor  of  Commerce/Bachelor  of  Science.  It was at university where I studied multiple biology subjects about the effects of climate change on plants, animals, ecosystems, like the Great Barrier Reef, and the repercussions it has on society. I realized I wanted to shape my career to researching and advising on climate change mitigation. 

Do you have any advice for students who may be struggling to find their passion?

One of the best pieces of advice I have ever received was from my parents, two people who are extremely passionate about their careers. They said the key to a happy and successful life was to always do something that makes you  want to JUMP out of bed in the morning. From their experiences, careers are very long, work days can be very long, but if you’re passionate and driven by what you’re working on, it puts everything else into perspective. So I used that advice to choose my university degrees and my subsequent career path. So my advice to students struggling to find their passion, would be to heed my parents advice. Think about what makes  you  want  to  get  out  of  bed.  For  me,  it’s fighting climate change. Start with this question to work out what drives you and what are you curious about and the rest will fall into place.

What is something about Credit Suisse that has inspired you?

Working with my peers in the research team, I am inspired by the analysts’ commitment and passion in covering their respective yet diverse sectors. The research analysts at CS are driven individuals who thrive in a fast-paced environment where every day there is new information, research and data to assimilate and report to our clients. It is this environment of constant learning and change which inspires me.
