Why do you want to pursue a career in finance?

I relish in the challenge of decoding the mystery behind financial topics and leverage my quantitative and analytical skills.

What makes you unique?

Hiking up the peaks in China spurred my ambition to constantly conquer new challenges and explore unknown scenarios. I have a natural curiosity for life, which I can hopefully apply in to the financial world one day.
