I am a Senior Consultant covering Finance and Banking front office, mainly Equities and IBD functions. My clients range from Japanese to foreign, from large bulge bracket firms to smaller, boutique firms.
Life is short and as you’re spending an average of 10-12 hours a day at work, make sure it is with a company that values you and keeps challenging you to grow. As people often say “the grass is always greener on the other side”, well, in many cases it actually is. If in doubt, speak to a good Headhunter and find out!
Born and raised in the UK, I came to Japan in 2006 and have been recruiting for the finance industry since 2008 (perfect timing to join). Most of my business has come from equity sales, research, trading and IBD functions such as M&A/coverage and financing (ECM/DCM). In my free time I enjoy going to the gym and film-making.
