Wealth Specialist - Johannesburg

Tom Darling

Tell us about how you contribute to the success of Carrick Wealth as an organisation.

I contribute to the success of Carrick through doing my job to the best of my abilities. I do this by always being available to help others in the organisation and being as much of a team player as possible.

 

What is the best part about your job?

Being able to see proper financial planning in action. Having a servicing meeting with a client and seeing the impact you have. I enjoy helping people and I am super happy I have a profession where I can use my knowledge and expertise to help people.

 

Tell us about your personal and professional growth while working at Carrick.

Since joining Carrick through the Development Academy, I have grown phenomenally both personally and professionally. Professionally, I have grown my knowledge extensively in financial planning and especially also in international investment. I have furthered my studies through short courses such as learning financial analysis through the programming language Python, an introduction to the FinTech course, and am completing a diploma in macro-economics. Next, I am looking to complete my master’s degree in finance and completing levels 3 and 4 of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI).

 

What is a typical day at work like for you?

A typical day at work would be starting the day catching up on the news and understanding the markets, followed by servicing my current clients. After that I would use the rest of my day for meeting new people and bettering myself professionally.

“I have been a client of Tom Darling (Carrick) for almost three years. I have found Tom, not only to be extremely professional and knowledgeable, he also communicates well and always keeps me informed of my investment’s performance. I have especially been very impressed with the way they handled the COVID crisis and I never felt like my investments were at risk despite all the uncertainty that was going around. I highly recommend Carrick to anyone looking to grow and diversify their investments. They are great partners and I especially enjoy my dealings with Tom Darling.”
