I am a BBA Finance graduate who began trading a few years ago while I was still a physics student. After taking a few economics classes and no real understanding of how the complex financial system works, in autodidactic style I opened a trading account and began teaching myself the mechanics of the financial markets. Fast forward a few years and I found my true passion in life. My insatiable curiosity lead to many opportunities in the finance field. For example, I became the Chairperson, Lead Portfolio Manager and a Research Analyst for my school's student run investment Portfolio. I have also worked as an investment analyst with a global institutional investment consulting firm while studying, participated in multiple open-outcry trading competitions (Top 15% each time), participated in a CFA Case Competition, helped an alumni and friend secure funding to launch and ultimately commercialise a new product, and even created financial models for other business plans for entrepreneurs.Currently I am actively seeking an analyst/associate level position with an intelligent and experienced team. I am looking for companies with a strong progressive culture with an incubating environment for young energetic professionals. I have completed the Canadian Securities Course and plan to take the CFA Level I as soon as I am able to secure a full time position.I also actively build a network of like minded progressive, energetic, and actualizing individuals who are also interested in building a conducive environment for our society.I am also interested in working on Research projects involved with economics, investment management, mutual funds, hedge funds, alternative asset classes or the like.I have frequently been told that I am one of the hardest working and diligent people that they know. I love doing research and I have an insatiable curiosity that drives me to get the answers you need. Please send me a message if you would like to work with me or if there is anything I may be able to help you out with, I would be more than happy to hear from you!
