Board Member Chat: Is This The Right Job for Me?
Join us on January 25th for a fireside chat with a new CFA Society Boston Board member, Tiffany Hu, CFA, Managing Director at State Street Global Advisors. Starting her career as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and a Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) at McGladrey & Pullen, managing auditing financial statements, she transitioned her role from an auditor to the investment industry 15 years ago, first in the internal controls function, then rotated in mutual fund/hedge fund client service and operations, then internal strategy consulting , then investment compliance and operations, then building and deploying trading compliance applications, then regulatory implementation, then liquidity risk, then market surveillance, then market data vendors, then…. With all of those pivots along the way in Goldman Sachs, Fidelity, Arrowstreet Capital and now State Street Global Advisors, Tiffany keeps asking the same question, “Is this the right job for me?"
