Why you like working for Target?
We have a very collegiate approach at Target and everyone, regardless of title, are encouraged to voice their opinion on each transaction we consider. I believe that this results in more considered and more robust investment recommendations.
Your interest/passion outside Target.
Outside of work I love to spend time with my family, particularly watching my son playing football and my daughter doing gymnastics. I enjoy playing snooker competitively.
