Mr. IB Back Office To Front Office/Consulting

About Me:

I have a passion for finance and investment strategy. I am seeking to leverage my 3 years in back office finance operations (2 years as a middle-market asset manager and 1 year at a bulge bracket global IB) and my undergraduate degree in finance to move up into front office IB or consulting. I want to make big decisions and have an impact.
