Stephanie Niven

I am white British, went to a both a comprehensive and grammar state school, then onto Oxford University where I read History.

In 2005 I joined Goldman Sachs straight from university on their graduate programme as a global equity analyst, having completed an internship there the previous year.  In 2009 I left with two colleagues to co-found a hedge fund, Javelin Capital LLP, and ran my own global equity long-short book.

In 2012 I moved on to join Tesco Pension Investment as a global equity portfolio manager and in 2018 left to join Aviva Investors in a similar role co-running the company’s Global Equity Endurance strategy.

I have a pro bono role as a member of the Board of Trustees at COIF Charity Funds.  I am married, my husband and I have two (soon to be three) children, and he is a stay at home dad.
