Owen Roberts

How did you get started in your career and what drew you to Morgan Stanley?

I began working in the interest Rate Strategy Team where I developed market knowledge and analytical skills before becoming an interest rate trader, my focus is specifically on the UK government bond market. I was drawn to Morgan Stanley given their reputation as a leading employer.

What are your typical daily responsibilities?

My disability, I am hard of hearing and so I wear hearing aids. I struggle without my aids and so wear them all of the time.

How do you manage your disability at work?

My disability has never hindered me. Except when I run out of batteries and I need to pop out to the chemist to buy more!

How has your employer helped you to do well at your workplace?

Morgan Stanley has a very diverse culture, in fact it is the diverse culture that helps us do business across the globe and with many people.

What advice or top tips would you offer?

If you appear comfortable with you disabilities then I think everybody will be too.
