I am currently working in the Technical Marketing team at Investec Asset Management (IAM); this function is the last link before the distribution of marketing communications, and helps ensure us comply with our regulatory obligations. My role involves reviewing and approving global marketing collateral across various media to ensure they meet the marketing standards in the various jurisdictions in which these are distributed; this is a very meticulous process and requires an eye for detail and plenty of patience! The marketing collateral in scope of Technical Marketing approval includes hundreds of documents including funds and investment strategy sales aids, websites, manager commentaries, podcasts, videos, press releases…etc. Previously, I was selected to participate in the QConsult programme (sponsored by J.P. Morgan), to undertake a Consultant Intern role at a global asset management bank; this was whilst I was studying at Queen Mary University for my degree in Mathematics with Finance and Accounting.
