I began my financial career in investment banking with JP Morgan in London. I was then able to transfer my skills to a head of technology role within corporate and institutional banking at BNZ. However the world of banking did not fill me with excitement, so my partner and I opened our own direct import, wholesale & retail business of home furnishings. After 7 years of enjoyable hard work we sold our business. At which point I took on my role with Cohort Solutions as Country Manager to help deliver value for international students arriving into NZ. Our primary product is our International Payments platform, called Cohortpay. Cohortpay is designed specifically for International Students to save money on their tuition related foreign exchange transfers.
