Senior Analyst
Risk Management Group

"I'm a Mathematics graduate who has always had a keen interest in finance. I started at Macquarie as an intern in the Risk Management Group, and upon completing this program I was accepted to continue working for the same team as a graduate.

While working at Macquarie I have always been able to find a healthy balance between work and extracurricular activities. Since I started work I have continued to play soccer every week, go to the gym regularly, volunteer at my local church, continue in my studies and also propose to my girlfriend and get married."


Division Director
Financial Management Group

“I learned the art of logical thinking through my Mathematics degree.  This has been invaluable in my work in risk management which is all about asking questions and joining the dots.”


Risk Management Group

“My background is in mathematics and chemical engineering, so working at Macquarie has been my first foray into finance. From day one I was expected to take ownership of tasks and encouraged to explore different ways of problem solving.

So far, I’ve met many different people in my role, working with teams in London, San Francisco and New York. The opportunity to work on deal analysis from early on in my career has been amazing.”


Risk Management Group

"A maths degree provides you with many skills that are directly transferable to roles at Macquarie – things like statistical analysis, programming and being able to apply logical thinking. During my internship at Macquarie, I had the opportunity to apply theoretical mathematical concepts in a practical way, and that was very satisfying."
