Guest speaker, Maria Gardner, on the role of investment consultants

Maria Gardner, Asset Risk Consultants

Our first year students are currently studying Fundamentals of Investment Business as a core element of their BSc (Hons) International Financial Services degree. The course provides an insight into contemporary academic theory on financial intermediation which is applied to the investment industry, ensuring students have a thorough understanding of key practitioners within the business, ranging from investment and fund managers, trusts, and investment consultants.

This week, we were delighted to welcome Maria Gardner, a Senior Investment Analyst at Asset Risk Consultants. Maria provided an overview of the role investments consultants play and the interactions they have with key market participants. Our students were also able to benefit from Maria’s expertise and the experience she gained from working at a global investment bank and a leading Jersey-based hedge fund.

As a leading industry figure and highly qualified professional, Maria’s input was invaluable – we look forward to welcoming her back.
