  • Emma Price, Associate Director
    “I chose to work for Moore as I wanted to work for a fund administrator that prides itself on providing its clients with high quality and personalised services. I liked the fact that Moore is relatively small, allowing me have to have more exposure and input into all areas of the business, but it also has the benefits of being part of a larger organisation - First Names Group. Because my role very much depends on what is happening with my clients, no two days are ever the same - which I love! But the best thing about Moore for me is the people I work with. It is brilliant to be part of a team that supports each other to provide the best service possible.”
