A monthly Career Clinic where members of the Advisory Board will provide invaluable career advice
Learn how to take your assets and turn them into profits with the Career Clinic on Asset Management. Asset Management is a high growth, fast paced, competitive space and you the job seeker need to think and act differently to master it. Kanira Shah, Satellite Manager Belgium, EIT Digital shares her wealth of experience and covers getting into asset management, with Alpesh Patel.
It’s not all about the money. Thought leadership and accumulated knowledge is an asset just as important as revenue-generating business lines. It drives strategy, innovation and inspires loyalty.
Kanira’s is an unusual story as she went from studying engineering, to joining Bloomberg after graduation then quitting to be a creative entrepreneur for three years – and then only making a switch to asset management/Private Equity.
The overarching theme was not to be afraid to make a change but how to act on that change and execute it. Her advice, “Change is good even if you’re not from a traditional background. If you don’t try you will never know and you will be left with questions. Go after whatever inspires you”
