I have started my professional career at Mercer, Portugal. Thsi consited in monitoringthe performance and analysis for pension schemes within the UK and Irish markets; funding level risk analysis and reporting; style research analysis on equity portfolios; manager selection reporting.
I worked along with a team of 50 young people where the work environment made the difference. Although we were working on tight deadlines and under pressure 100% of our time, we found that the work atmosphere, the co-operation and the support of our team was a main contributor to our performance and motivation.
Among other aspects, this experience definitely improved my time management and how to prioritise tasks; and attention to detail.
