Why do you want to pursue a career in finance?

I found my passion in pursuing a career in finance after performing extensive quantitative strategy research throughout my undergraduate career,

What makes you unique?

After participating in FXCM’s Internship program in NYC and working on quantitative strategy research while at Chance Focus Asset Management, I have a greater understanding of finance, mathematics, and communication. Through my previous experiences as class monitor and team leader, I also possess a strong management and problem-solving skillset.
