CHASING THE CHALLENGE Mahalia Watson on Growing at JMMB

I always enjoy a good challenge, and I decided pursuing a career in the financial industry would give me the challenge I was looking for every day. And it has! I thrive with challenge, and at JMMB, I get to overcome challenges and grow personally and professionally. JMMB offered me my first permanent role in the financial industry. I’ve been with the firm now for about one and half years serving as Personal Portfolio Management Administrator. Portfolio management is a big part of what we do here at JMMB, and I am here to support our group of Personal Portfolio Managers. I create client databases and accounts, process client transactions, and relieve the reception desk and the investment desk. I also prepare letters and statements for clients, along with hypothecations and bid bonds. The position is very much team-driven. I love working in a team-based environment, which makes JMMB even more ideal. It’s fast-paced and you are never bored. Since my first days at JMMB, I have admired the fact that JMMB is always immersed in our clients’ worlds. We have our clients’ best interests at heart, but it goes further than that. It’s doing the right thing and being a part of their lives. This kind of environment makes JMMB a real home away from home. Not only is the work fun and challenging, but my team members are family to me. We all treat one another with love and respect. This respect is well- earned, but it’s easy to respect people who care so much about what they do.

Coming into the office, l look forward to seeing this work family. I look forward to working together as a team. As much as I enjoy challenges as an individual, there is something truly great about breaking through a challenge as team. It brings you closer together and strengthens those professional ties. As for our clients, every one of them brings something new and interesting to the table. Every person has a unique personality and story. I learn new and amazing things about our clients every day. It’s fascinating to hear their stories.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. We often get together to watch movies, go to the beach, or just spend quality time with one another. I also do what I can to take my son somewhere new whenever I get the chance to. I always take an opportunity to show him another part of the world he lives in. This summer, I’m looking forward to my son’s birthday — maybe we will get to go somewhere new! It’s my goal to explore as much as possible. We still have so many places yet to explore and so much adventure ahead of us! –Mahalia Watson
