How Experimentation Creates Clarity and Success With Eden Simmer

On the Fierce Feminine Leadership podcast, we focus on how to help women become fierce and how to step into their power as leaders. Women are instrumental in affecting change in their home, their businesses, and the world and we need to inspire confidence in each other so we can take our rightful place at the helm.


I’m excited to bring you another episode of our special series sponsored by The Security Traders Association of Women in Finance Initiative. It is my delight to introduce my guest, Eden Simmer, who is a fierce feminine leader in the world of finance with eleven years of investment experience, has an MBA from Columbia Business School, undergraduate degrees in finance and economics, and an international business certificate from the University of Iowa. She is the senior vice president and equity trader for Pacific Investment Management Company, LLC in New York (PIMCO) and she also worked at Deutsche Asset Management as an equities and foreign exchange trader, and ABN AMRO Group as a foreign exchange and derivatives trading associate.


In today’s episode, Eden is going share her amazing story and give you some incredible insights about how you can become a fierce feminine leader in finance or outside of this industry so you can take your well-deserved seat at the table.
