“I feel pretty lucky that I get to do what I love…”
Vivek Mishra spent four years at Latrobe University studying accounting and finance because he always knew he had a passion for the industry. And landing the Adviser Assistant role at First Financial has allowed him to put that passion to work!
Before First Financial, he worked in an accounting role and although he enjoyed it, the number crunching wasn’t where his heart lay.
“I am really interested in the client-facing side of finance. I like helping people and while there was some of that in accounting, it wasn’t enough.
Now I have the chance to work in the area that I’ve always been interested in… applying personalised strategic advice to clients is something that the company does really well, and I get to be a part of that. It’s a great feeling to be helping people!”
As part of our team, Vivek gets to extend his knowledge and is continually learning… whether it be about investments or more in-depth understanding of the market, he knows that he has the support of all his colleagues.
“Our staff culture is much more like friends and family… it’s a great community and I really enjoy it!”
A man with many hobbies, Vivek is a keen basketball player and is also teaching himself the guitar, but he always takes a break to spend quality time with his family and friends.
