To Move from Consulting into Fintech with Caroline Murphree

Today’s episode is a special bonus episode which was recorded live at our JBM drinks event last month. 

Our special guest and your 40 Minute Mentor at this latest event was the brilliant Caroline Murphree, UK Director of Growth & Operations at Wealthsimple.

Wealthsimple is an online investment manager that combines user-friendly digital tools and personal investment advice to make smart, automated investing available to everyone. They have over 100,000 clients globally, £2bn in assets under management and have raised over $250m Canadian Dollars to fund their impressive growth.

As this was a live event our interview was followed by some questions from the live audience. Some of whom where a little further from the microphones than others so please excuse the fact that some of the questions at the end of this episode are a little quiet.

I hope you will all really enjoy this extra special episode and learn lots from the great insights that Caroline shares!

“People have traced to part of the wage gap has actually been traced to men having a much better idea of what their peers are making, and that’s because they’re more open to talk about money.”
