Trained as an actuary and a professional in mathematics and statistics, Fahim managed bond portfolios, fixed income, corporate bond portfolios, and government bond portfolios. Since then, he told Vizaca.com, “I got out of my comfort zone and took my knowledge of technical products within asset management and learned to sell. I’ve worked with institutions, pension funds, and endowments over the years to achieve multi-million-dollar investments.”
He explains that he was “lucky to be taught how to sell and work with clients in a consultative partnership fashion. And that combination of skills—the technical and sales relationship aspects—means that I have a very strong skill set in selling fixed income asset management products to institutional investors, such as pension funds and foundations.”
As a child of Bangladeshi immigrants to the UK, Fahim told Vizaca.com that he is passionate about access to quality education for first and second-generation immigrants. He remembers how his parents went through difficult times personally and professionally, but they came through it together. The example set by his parents is what keeps him persevering through the challenges in his life.
