FRASER SCOTTON

Columbia Threadneedle Investments

Fund Accounting Analyst

School Leaver

Why do you enjoy your job?

I enjoy being challenged, and due to the nature of the analysis I have to do on a daily basis the challenge is always new and interesting. I’m not treated like a school leaver, everyone treats me like another member of the team and I have been fully included in all the projects and processes underway.

What is the most challenging thing about your job?

Adapting to the change from school was a big concern of mine as I was worried about the responsibilities I’d be given however I’ve found I thrive on the high pressure, deadline focused work I do.

How did you get into your job?

I joined the programme as a school leaver as I didn’t think university was right for me at the time. The process was very easy and all questions and concerns I had were addressed very quickly.

What are your future aspirations?

I hope to stay working in the asset management industry, with no current intention to attend university.

How would you sum up your Investment20/20 experience?

Invaluable experience at an industry leading firm.
