We are so excited to welcome Reggie Nelson, the innovative young man who went ‘from East London to the City’. Achieving this by knocking on the doors of people in wealthy area’s and asking for life advice. On his journey, Reggie has completed five internships at various asset managers and a hedge fund in the city, the most notable being BlackRock and Aberdeen Standard Investments.
He is described by former Prime Minister, Theresa May, as a “persistent and inspiring young person”.
“I’m really looking forward to working on a lot of cool projects with the OWN IT! Team, and I’m glad I get to work with a team that really buys into my vision and will help me elevate from more than one angle”
Reggie Nelson will be represented by Crystal Mahey-Morgan, who commented:
“Reggie personifies innovation, initiative and inspiration. He had the courage and audacity to knock on stranger’s doors to ask for advice on how to be successful and through this opened many future doors for himself. He is now passionate about opening doors for others through his story and experiences and we’re truly delighted to have him join the OWN IT! collective”.
