Why did you join FT?

I joined because I was intrigued by the push that was being made by the firm into alternative risk premia. I knew that I would enjoy the intellectual challenge of researching systematic trading strategies, and it was clear that it would be a growing part of FT’s offerings.

What makes Franklin Templeton a great place to work?

The collegial environment. I have a great rapport with every person I work with, and I genuinely feel as though we’re working towards a common goal. Another perk of working at FT is that I have been given the room and tools to develop my skills. Whether it be programming or market analysis, I feel that I have what I need at my disposal in order to improve every day.
