“Etienne worked as a feature writer and copy editor on MetroTalk, our in-house company magazine for financial advisers. Starting in the first quarter of 2014, he ultimately made contributions to more than 20 issues. Topics ranged from financial planning and insurance policies to market segmentation and sales strategies. His articles were always well researched and written, and he has a remarkable talent for spotting everything from typos to inconsistencies in numerical data. Meticulous.”
