Why do you want to pursue a career in finance?

As one who welcomes new challenges, I strive to develop a great understanding of the latest business trends and utilize my strong quantitative skill set and teamwork ability.

What makes you unique?

To stay up to date with the financial world, I frequently read journals and share information with other practitioners, making me a strong critical thinker who works deliberately. Additionally, through my travels throughout Europe, North America, Asia, and Oceania, I have developed a positive and inclusive mindset that can appreciate and respect the differences in a multi-cultural society.
