Kiegan Groot

Investment Research Intern

What career & life path led you to working at OneVest?

I have always had a passion for investing and knew from the start of high school that was the path I wanted to go down. While searching for a summer internship, I was fascinated by OneVest’s dedication to bringing high-level portfolio construction to everyday investors. I've been fortunate to find an opportunity to be surrounded by people who share the same passion and drive for investing.

What do you do at OneVest?

As an investment research intern, I help the investment management team seek out the optimal investment products for inclusion in OneVest model portfolios and witness the full portfolio construction process. I love getting to see my research and input used in the development of our products, as it makes me constantly excited for what is next to come.

What is your favourite part about working at OneVest?

OneVest has an unmatched corporate culture, with a supportive community eager to help me learn and grow. At times, I barely feel like an intern, and get to help with high-level projects beyond what I ever thought I'd do as an intern. I'm motivated by the trust within our team and don't think I could find another company as inclusive as OneVest.

What do you do outside of work?

Outside of my passion for investing I love playing squash in my free time and have competed in national-level events since I was 12 years old. On the weekends I share my passion as the head squash professional at the University of Calgary mentoring aspiring athletes. Sport has always been a large part of my life and I believe that creating a healthy, exciting life outside of work helps fuel my dedication and efficiency inside the office!
