Building a successful and meaningful career in Finance can be a challenging proposition.
The path to leadership and opportunities at leading institutions can be opaque, inaccessible to people who didn’t go to specific schools, and especially hard to navigate if you’re a woman or person of color.
So in 2020, how should someone think about building a successful and meaningful career in Finance?
Jenny Horne, Head of US Institutional Clients at Schroders, is hosting a Fishbowl Q&A on this topic on Tuesday, July 14.
Jenny is a great person to host a discussion on how to build a career in Finance given her own untraditional path to success.
Jenny’s career started as a Portfolio Manager/Analyst at Oppenheimer Capital from 1987 to 1995, where she managed large cap equity portfolios for Institutional clients.
From there, Jenny moved on to work with the equity research team at Evaluation Associates from 1995 to 2007. While at Evaluation Associates, Jenny took a five-year career break to pursue a Certificate in Landscape Design from the New York Botanical Garden and spend time with her family and three children.
Jenny was a Managing Director at BlackRock from 2008 to 2013, where she expanded the business throughout the US and developed relationships with large family offices.
Since 2013, Jenny has led Relationship Management and Client Service teams and is responsible for building relationships with a number of large institutional clients in her role as Head of US Institutional Clients at Schroders.
She believes non-linear career paths are essential to find fulfillment and confirm the right career direction for yourself.
