We catch up with Elemi Atigolo, a Partner at Clearwater Wealth Management, Principal Partner Practice of St James's Place Wealth Management.
I did an Accounting and Finance MA and graduated in 2004.
I looked at other universities but Kingston really appealed to me because of its flexibility. Other unis wanted me to have a BA in a similar area to my chosen masters. But I'd done computing. So instead of having to do a BA in accounting, I spoke to the course leaders, proved to them that I was passionate and knowledgeable about this area, and they gave me a place. I also have really good friends who have gone down the Kingston route.
Fascinating. Educational. Growth.
I'm doing exactly what I wanted to do, working as a partner in a world-class wealth management company. I got the taste and just went for it. Next steps? I see myself staying in wealth management, possibly starting my own business.
A vertical bungee jump! I have a fear of heights so it was great to conquer it. Next step? Out of an aeroplane skydiving.
Work hard and enjoy learning. You can benefit so much from lecturers, teachers and other students. Oh, and read ahead whenever you go into a lecture and seminar. That way you take things in a much stronger way!
I'm always laughing!
Spending time with my family and friends. I need to make the best of my time away from the long hours that I spend in the city.
A mobile phone. Not least to call in a rescue.
Lobster. I love seafood.
The Pursuit of Happiness with Will Smith. A great uplifting message.
