13 years ago Anita Shaw was an engineering major who saw an opportunity to try something new. Now she’s a Managing Director, running a global trading desk.
On the occasion of Morgan Stanley's Global Women Managing Directors Conference, some of the attendees took the opportunity to discuss challenges, support systems and career trajectories within the firm.
Anita Shaw is Head of the New York Foreign Exchange Options Trading Desk. Being passionate about her work is key for Anita: “Even if I won the lottery I would still want to go to work.” Through more than a dozen years of working her way up, Anita credits her success to the support of both managers and mentors, as well as the supportive community she has found along the way.
