Claire Forsythe

Market Analyst, LIC

I was looking for a new challenge after I completed my Masters. As my parents are dairy farmers the Market Analyst position at LIC was both interesting to me personally and professionally. My passion for numbers and hardworking ethic got me the job and it helped having background knowledge in the dairy industry!

The MSc gave me the opportunity to expand my skills and knowledge, which I have been able to apply to my everyday work. My role involves weekly and monthly reporting for the LIC New Zealand Markets team in areas such as financials, activity and customer information.

A Masters in Statistics from Waikato University is a prestigious degree that makes employers look at you twice. It showed that I am able to apply myself and think outside of the box.
