With a score of 88% her top ten placing put Zoe ahead of over 24,000 students across the globe who also sat the paper. She was also placed in the top three in Ireland.

Gerry Warwick, Head of Operations for Heritage UK and Ireland said, “We are absolutely delighted with Zoe’s result and she should be very proud of her performance. Zoe has worked with Heritage since her university placement year and is a highly valued member of our fund accounting team. An exceptional result such as this encourages us to continue to invest in local talent and work closely with ACCA and the Ulster University Business School to promote fund administration and financial services in Northern Ireland.
