About Me:

Class of 2022, 5+ years all in Finance Starting off as a trader in London, work permit issues forced me to pivot to Singapore and work as an Interbank broker for FX and Fixed Income markets, whereby I started as a junior trainee and worked myself up to a Senior broker helping establish the company’s brand and market share from 0 to being near the top.

Big Life Wins:

Starting off as a junior all alone in Singapore at a desk with 0 market share, worked my socks off to help establish the firm and myself as a market leader in doing what we do in a smaller team with a smaller budget compared to competition seeing multiple promotions.

Moving out of Singapore to a location in Europe or the middle east and start my own family and finally settle down after a childhood of moving location. Professionally I hope to leverage my MBA to transition into a new more growth-focused industry/startup.
