M&G Women in Fund Management Event

M&G Investments held a Women in Investment Management event that targeted female undergraduates considering a career in Investment Management and inspired them about the range of exciting career opportunities available in investment management. Participants did not need to be studying a finance related degree to attend.

Two women from M&G shared their experiences and insights into the financial world:

Jenny Rogers is a member of the Macro & Multi Asset Investment Team at M&G and Co-Fund Manager of the M&G Episode Growth Fund. She joined Prudential Portfolio Managers (now M&G) in 1994, initially analysing European equity markets and acting as a Portfolio Manager for external clients. She has been part of the Macro Investment team led by Dave Fishwick since it was established in 1999. Jenny is a Chartered Financial Analyst and has a BA Honours in Economics from Exeter University.

Catherine Ross joined M&G Leveraged Finance in October 2005 and is an Assistant Fund Manager on the open-ended market value loan funds. After university, she joined NM Rothschild & Sons on the graduate training programme, then joined the Banking Advisory team specialising in providing UK government advice for project and infrastructure finance transactions. She joined M&G in 2001, initially focusing on Fixed Income product development (working on the launch of M&G’s European Loan Funds and Episode) before joining the Leveraged Finance team. Catherine holds an MA from Cambridge University.

M&G is a progressive employer that actively encourages and supports female talent. Lauren Salter, Apprenticeships Manager and Senior Graduate Consultant at M&G says "M&G is an active supporter of gender diversity. We've recently achieved a 50/50 gender diversity split for our Investment graduate scheme and are already reaping the benefits of our structured women in finance events supporting women into the financial services industry."

M&G will also be hosting further Insights Days for First Year Undergraduates in spring 2017.
