Symmetry Spotlight: Rebecca Cioban, CFA

Rebecca Cioban, CFA, Co-Director of Investments, shares her Symmetry experience.

 

What led you to a career in finance?

What brought me here to Symmetry Partners is really curiosity. As an undergraduate, I was studying globalization and essentially how the interconnectedness of today affects all aspects of the way we live.

I was finishing my degree, trying to think about my next step. I took an internship here at Symmetry Partners. I found I really connected with what we do here because we’ve seen a transition where, back in the 1950s, everyone had pensions and all of that's been shifted now onto the individual, where you may have somebody who’s absolutely on top of whatever it is that they do for a job. Maybe they're a doctor or a lawyer or they’re an artist or they manage people. That doesn’t mean they’re going to be good at managing themselves and getting themselves to hit the goal marks that they need to have a good life once they’re past their career.

 

What is Symmetry’s key differentiator?

What really differentiates Symmetry is how nimble we are. Symmetry Partners is, at its core, still a small company. We’ve grown a lot over the years. We’re still always trying to think about what the next move is and how we can meet that next opportunity.

 

What is the most important way you help Symmetry’s clients?

Our team helps our client base by coming up with innovative solutions. A lot of what we focus on is trying to hear from the people we do business with, learn about the problems they’re facing, and then look through the landscape of all of the different products that are available out there in the marketplace and come up with solutions to fix those problems.

 

What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned professionally?

The biggest lesson I’ve learned is related to approaching everything with a fresh set of eyes—remembering that wins can take any form. A lot of times, we’re looking for that next big win, but sometimes wins are just little improvements over time.

 

What is the best advice you've ever received?

It’s important to not be afraid of change. The world is shifting around me and the best way to deal with that is to come in and accept that that’s where things are now—and be excited about that.

 

Our firm runs on talent, skill, experience, and teamwork. Watch the Symmetry Spotlight video series to learn more about the professionals behind Symmetry’s client services, marketing, and investment strategies.

Investing involves risk, including the loss of some or all of your principal. Diversification seeks to reduce volatility by spreading your investment dollars into various asset classes to add balance to your portfolio.
