Living our Values

‘At Zetland, I’ve been sometimes referred to as the credit markets “librarian.” I suppose two decades of following and analysing these markets, along with my somewhat obsessive approach to gathering and analysing information might lend itself to such a title. I can’t imagine any other job. I love what I do and I’m lucky to have found a firm that shares my values. The partnerships I have forged at Zetland, along with the opportunity to give back, share and teach my knowledge and approach to the upcoming analysts, is such a pleasure and privilege. Working with curious, committed and super analytical minds and, dare I say, having fun doing so, is a rare find in our industry.’
