Currently I am majoring in Economics in the Arts and Sciences School at Cornell University and I have recently incorporated my own research company 'Legion Investments & Advisory Company LLC'. Academically, I have pursued my financial interest both inside and outside the classroom. At Cornell I have engaged in a demanding curriculum in finance, economics and public policy to understand the broad forces that affect financial markets. Additionally, I have managed a significantly capitalized IRA retirement portfolio over the past five years. I am particularly interested in bottom-up fundamental equity analysis in the context of macro and industry trends. In pursuing this interest I have analyzed financial statements and conducted both individual firm and industry wide research using, among others, quarterly earnings calls, financial statements, and evaluating emerging macro and industry trends. My professional experience includes a corporate advisory internship with Standard Chartered in Beijing. My responsibilities included valuation modeling and macro-economic trend analysis with the goal of developing strategies to unlock value in client companies. Additionally, I had the opportunity to intern with FH International Asset Management As a credit analyst. Here I learned to quickly assess a firm’s financial strength and growth potential. My responsibilities included identifying exposure risk to foreign financing, commodity price fluctuations, currency risk and political stability in order to create a complete picture of a firm’s financial credibility. Through my professional experience I have developed strong financial analytic skills and proficiency using financial software.
