I have around eleven years of finance experience, of which six were gained in a ‘fast-stream’ career path as a bottom-up fundamental analyst with highly regarded investors. My most recent role was as an investment consultant with a former partner at one of London's most successful hedge-funds and we were looking to launch a new fund together. Before that, I was the senior analyst at a Goldman Sachs spin-out fund seeded by a top 50 hedge-fund of funds. I'm ready to step up to a position as a PM but am very open to positions as an analyst. I started my career in corporate finance and was a Goldman Sachs summer intern. I also have experience as a quant in the systematic equity investment space. I am passionate about investing and I come with excellent references from impressive individuals; I am now seeking my next challenge.

I've been following the stock market ever since I was in grade 10 and have become fascinated by it. I am a finance student now in college but I still follow the macro economy and the markets very closely. I hope to communicate and seek good ideas and sound advice from others who also share the same interest as me on this site. Good luck trading and make a nasty killing!!! Cheers.
