I am a lifelong learner who loves finance and wants to have a tangible impact in finance. Having 2.5 years of professional experience in a small hedge fund, I am currently doing more coding / back-testing than when I started, my role was more of a fundamental analysis of companies / industries. I want to move from investing in public markets to banking and ultimately to private markets.
