In a statement by Gareth, he said that attaining a top degree from a good university is crucial if one wants to succeed in his/her career. He took a brave step when he decided to go back to university in 2001 at the age of 32. Studying degree in actuarial maths from Heriot-Watt, Gareth attained a first-class degree which he believes helped propel his career in finance by helping him understand the maths behind the investments.

Looking at the great success that he has made in his career, it goes without saying that education is crucial for career success. He, however, argues that one needs to balance school with other fun activities as well.

Money spent on education doesn’t go to waste; instead, it lays a firm foundation for career success.
