Fiona invests in firm's future.
Fiona has now brokered success in one of the UK's toughest post-graduate finance qualifications.
Over a period of 18 months, the 27(year(old has juggled the demands of her position at the North East's largest investment management firm with a rigorous study programme.
And she has now completed the Securities and Investment Institute Diploma, widely regarded as one of the most stringent investment industry qualifications.
In October, Fiona was among an elite minority of candidates in the UK to gain a credit mark in the Private Client and Investment Management section of the three-part diploma.
She said: "It's a very tough process, but one that Wise Speke is keen to put all their investment advisors through.
"It gives clients greater confidence in our abilities and offers each advisor great experience in reaching the expected standards.
"It was a relief to complete the diploma and hugely satisfying on a personal level. It makes all the hours studying worth while."
Ben Speke, head of Wise Speke's Newcastle operations, added: "Fiona is a great asset to the investment team here."
