I am proud to be part of the company it has become today
Natalie Meech – Events, London
I have worked at Berenberg for over 12 years (I was the tenth member of Berenberg London!). I feel very fortunate to have been part of the firm from its early life in London, and to have been able to grow with the Bank to where we both are today.
I head up the events team to organise a comprehensive calendar of events across the UK, Europe and the USA. These can include anything from large four-day conferences to annual football tournaments and various wine tastings, just to name a few.
I have also been able to take on some exciting events which have been fairly unique: a personal highlight was taking 75 clients to the top of the One World Trade Center two weeks before it was open to the public (or even the press); another was arranging for 51 people to cycle across the narrowest part of the UK in just over two days to raise money for our charity partner – no two days are ever the same!
I was part of the original committee to set up our community involvement programme, “BerenbergKids”, which supports underprivileged children and we encourage as many people as possible to get involved in either volunteer days or our annual sporting challenge. It is a rewarding programme and adds another dynamic to life at Berenberg.
Why do I like working in London?
“I love working in a city steeped in history yet one that is full of diversity; our offices in London are right next to the old Bank of England which is such an iconic building yet it is juxtaposed to the new modern London skyline of the Shard and the Gherkin. I enjoy the buzz I get out of working in a fast-paced industry in the bustling metropolis that is London.”
Tradition hand in hand with modern technical challenges
Daniel Schaller – IT Trading Development, London
While Berenberg has a long history of over 425 years, it is constantly evolving to embrace new challenges in its business and consequently, within IT. I joined Berenberg in February 2016 as a software engineer in the Investment Banking IT Department.
After many years of working for a large Investment Bank, I wanted to work for a smaller company, yet still be able to apply my many years of experience and skills in electronic trading IT – Berenberg allows me to do exactly this. I really enjoy the responsibility, trust and freedom given to me which makes my work not only challenging but also very enjoyable. It also allows me to make valuable contributions and help shape the transformation of Berenberg’s IT Team.
I frequently travel to our Hamburg office and this has allowed me to bridge relationships with our German counterparts and maintain my native German language skills which I thoroughly enjoy!
Berenberg has delivered on everything it promised when I joined.
Paul Somers – Sales Trading, London
There is a fantastic culture and ethos throughout the investment bank; entrepreneurial, hard-working, and please excuse the cliche, this really is a ‘one-team’ kind of place.
The trading division has enjoyed massive investment and I can speak on behalf of the team when I say that the success we are enjoying makes it even more of a fun and interesting division to work in.
I travel regularly in North America, as do many colleagues from Europe. Travelling in Europe and North America is an important part of many roles in the investment bank to initiate and develop relationships with clients – Three years ago I was educating our clients on how to spell Berenberg, but now we are so well-established and respected that the hardest part of the trip is finding enough hours in the day to see everybody.
Having worked at many different banks or stockbrokers before Berenberg, I can honestly say I wouldn’t switch this role for anywhere else.
Our team ethos is always ‘what can we improve?’
Becky Orme – Wealth and Asset Management, London
In the seven years that I have worked for the business it has been constantly evolving. The continuous endeavour for excellence ensures that no day is ever the same or uninteresting! Despite being the second oldest bank in the world the working environment within Berenberg is one of innovation and accountability. This culture is reinforced by management giving staff the opportunity and support to develop their knowledge, expand their skill set and take responsibility for evolving the business.
We are an investment content led wealth and asset management business, using the equity, fixed income and economic research published by our investment bank as a competitive advantage to provide our clients with sophisticated and bespoke investment advice.
Our team ethos is always ‘what can we improve?’ and this approach not only applies to the high standard of service we deliver to our clients, many of whom are entrepreneurs, but also to each member of staff and how they can individually develop their expertise and knowledge within Wealth and Asset Management. The atmosphere created by this philosophy together with a strong team culture ensures that driven individuals thrive whilst also maintaining a key focus on client service.
