Believe it or not, I was a chemistry major in college. And while it may not seem like there is much (if any) overlap between beakers and blue chips, what drew me to chemistry is what I love most about working in finance.
Chemistry is often called “central science” because it requires a knowledge of several different scientific disciplines. In order to be a chemist, you have to have a solid understanding of geology, biology, physics, botany, ecology, astrophysics…
In other words, you have to know a little about a lot of things to do your job.
The same is true for finance. In order to be a successful financial analyst, one must be genuinely interested and well-versed in a variety of industries and subject matter. A passion for lifelong learning, and the ability to connect the dots between seemingly unrelated areas has been a major source of inspiration for me in developing sound investment strategies for my clients.
Over the years I’ve pursued my passion for learning through personal travel, as well as attending conferences, lectures, salons, and fireside chats on a wide variety of fascinating topics.
I’m excited to share the perspectives and unique insights I’ve gained from my travels and professional experiences, as well as hear your feedback and impressions, here on my blog!
