Planning Analyst

How long have you been with Pacem?
7 months

What does your day-to-day role entail?
My day-to-day role is based around assisting in preparing reports and completing client work alongside our advisors. However, recently I have additionally been providing help with the compliance side of the business, this is an old acquaintance of mine as I previously worked in compliance.

How would you describe yourself in three words?
Diligent, ambitious, and motivated.

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.
I currently hold a golf handicap of 3, probably not a surprise to anyone in the office as its how I spend most of my evenings.

What do you like most about your job?
I enjoy the variety of the job; no two days are the same and you are continually learning and developing as a person.

If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
I dream of this most weekends but if I was to win it, I’d say I would probably share my wealth with my family and friends, no point in having that amount of money if you’re the only one enjoying it.

Favourite film
Nothing beats a great film; I would have to say my favourite film is Good Will Hunting.

Where is the best place you’ve travelled to and why?
New Zealand, I went out to see family and have to say the main reason I enjoyed it was it was similar to home but with better weather.
