In their own words

Senior Client Service Associate, Client Services Group
Joined in 2015

I came to CA expecting a job, and instead found a rewarding career working with some of the most driven and kindest people in the industry. There’s a rare sense of community at CA that I think really sets us apart and fosters exponential personal and professional growth.

Since joining CA’s Advisory Services Group, every day has been filled with new and exciting challenges, as well as opportunities to collaborate with colleagues across departments and offices. The environment here is unmatched, and I look forward to seeing the firm continue to grow.

Investment Director, GIS Private Client Practice
Joined in 2012

I joined Cambridge Associates from a non-finance background, but with a desire to learn about the investment industry. I now work within the private client investment team and have been able to develop broad insight across different investment asset classes, gain exposure to a wide range of sophisticated clients with unique goals and challenges, and access meetings with best-in-class fund managers.

Overall, a career at CA has provided a stimulating environment and collegial atmosphere that encourages knowledge-sharing.

Investment Analyst, GIS Endowments & Foundations
Joined in 2015

I joined CA shortly after graduating from college, full of excitement and ready to launch my career in financial services. Reflecting back, now having worked at CA for over two years, I could not have imagined the professional growth and tremendous opportunities that being an Investment Analyst at CA would provide – enriched by working with a phenomenal group of colleagues. I would recommend CA to anyone who thrives working in close knit team environments, and is eager to take on responsibility and build skills in providing outstanding client service.

Dorota Spaulding, Cambridge Associates
Senior Investment Director, GIR Public Equities & Bonds
Joined in 2005

There is always more to learn, new angles to explore, and new sources of alpha to find. Over my thirteen years here, I have been given plenty of room to learn and grow as an investor, an advisor, and as a person. It is the sort of place where you can start as an Analyst, and with enough interest, hard work, and mentorship, can grow into an Investment Director.

While my experience has been unusual for the industry, it is not unusual for CA. I have seen many others make a similar journey, which is a testament to what a great place this is to work.
