I am a final-year student at The Australian National University, studying a Bachelor of Finance and Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics, commencing a graduate role with Macquarie Capital in 2023. 

My time at university has been a tumultuous one for the financial services industry, as both the Hayne Royal Commission and climate change have prompted a public discussion about the role of finance in society. I took the oath in 2022 as I saw it as a core set of principles that should serve as the starting point for individuals and companies seeking to act ethically. I am looking forward to serving as a BFSO Young Ambassador in 2022 and hope to contribute to spreading greater awareness of the oath in the community. 

 

The Oath

  • Trust is the foundation of my profession.
  • I will serve all interests in good faith.
  • I will compete with honour.
  • I will pursue my ends with ethical restraint.
  • I will help create a sustainable future.
  • I will help create a more just society.
  • I will speak out against wrongdoing and support others who do the same.
  • I will accept responsibility for my actions.
  • In these and all other matters;
    My word is my bond.
