Paris Jordan

Paris joined the investment industry in 2012 after graduating university with an upper second-class honours degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics.

She joined Fidelity Investments as a Broker Service Associate and worked with financial advisors providing them assistance with their client accounts. After working with her team for eight months, she was promoted to work with Fidelity’s key advisor accounts, as the company recognised her strong service skills. During her time in a customer service role, she received three platinum awards for service, a feat which had never been achieved before. After another eight months, her manager recommended her for an internal role as an Analyst in the Business Strategy team, which she was accepted for, and moved over to work with key stakeholders and senior management. In this role she completed her Investment Operations Certificate and her Investment Management Certificate. After working in this team for a year, Paris moved to Sanlam FOUR Investments in 2014 to gain more exposure to investments. Paris initially worked as a Reporting Analyst where she also started studying for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) qualification. After working in the role for over a year and a half, and passing Level 1 of the CFA Program, she applied for a role in the multi-manager investment team. Paris was successfully selected as the first female investment professional at Sanlam FOUR in 2016. Today, she remains part of the investment team as a fund selector, specialising in Socially Responsible Investing, and aids her team in managing over £2bn. Paris qualified as a CFA Charterholder in 2019, contributes to several Mental Wellbeing Initiatives, and was selected as a member of Sanlam’s Junior Executive Committee in 2018. In her spare time, she has been a Mentor for The Girls’ Network, has taught English abroad with Angloville and currently works for ORCA as a Marine Mammal Surveyor. Paris is enthusiastic about Responsible Investing, has helped to drive the adoption of best practice within the Investment Management Industry and was awarded the CFA ESG Investing Certificate at the end of 2019.
