For the first time in the company's history, there's an Irish EdgePointer who isn’t a relationship manager. Claire hails from Killavullen in County Cork, a small village of just 250 people but with a claim to fame of being the ancestral home of the Hennessy brandy family. Growing up in Ireland, Claire developed her love of the great outdoors early, hiking and biking the mountains around her home, usually in the rain. On a gap year spent bartending in Toronto, Claire fell for the city and eventually swapped the Irish rain for the Canadian winter in January 2013. Unsurprisingly for an EdgePointer, her past hobbies are diversified and include Aussie Rules football and charity boxing. Besides Claire’s contributions to the Investment team, she also strengthens the EdgePoint holiday kids’ party thanks to her years of experience working as a Santa’s helper during university.
Before joining EdgePoint, Claire worked as an analyst at both Susquehanna International Group in Dublin and CI Financial Corp. in Toronto. She earned both her BBS in Economics & Finance and MSc in Finance from the University of Limerick, and is a CFA charterholder.
