What are the most and least favorite parts of your job?

My favorite part is helping drive decisions through analytical understanding of numbers and the new challenges every day that require critical thinking and a structured thought process. My least favourite part is brainlessly pulling numbers from various places and putting it together in a database — thought I must admit, it is critical to the job role!

What makes for a good Elevarian?

The ability to shut down all the noise and focus on what is really required. A good Elevarian is always a sport, and takes feedback in his or her own stride. The other qualities, I’d say, are exceptional time management, sense of urgency and communication skills.

How would you describe what you do at Elevar?

What I do, basically, is driving the portfolio management process, ensuring hygiene across various work streams in the current role and providing adequate support to the investment pod to drive portfolio decisions.
