  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • My role consisted of a range of diverse activities. Crafting reports for clients, evaluating asset managers responsible investment policies, helping with disinvestment strategy guidance, researching how AI can be used within the firm, and creating a public document on how the mansion house speech affects the firm.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • I've learnt many new skills while working at Hymans. I think my financial understanding specifically of repo swaps and LDI's has increased and I now understand how a pension scheme can de-risk. My communication skills have definitely gotten better due to having to speak and present. My data analysis e.g. identifying patterns has increased as well.
