Degree subject Business Studies (Accounting); Business and Financial Information Systems
Job title Client Services Manager
Employer KBC Asset Management
My clients are institutional pension fund holders. My job involves meeting with clients, client reporting and providing updates to my clients. I deal with every-day enquiries and ensure the investment team works in line with each fund's overall strategy.
I felt that my initial degree did not fully prepare me for my work as a client services manager, so I decided to complete a postgraduate diploma course in business and financial information systems to develop my skills and further my career. Most of my training has been on the job at KBC Asset Management.
Advice for graduates
For other graduates interested in this area of work I would recommend obtaining a degree or postgraduate diploma in business and/or financial economics. Knowledge and thorough understanding of economic methods would be very beneficial and relevant to this job.
