Short Bio:

As a graduate from National University of Singapore with internship experience in high workload in the law firm Allen & Gledhill, I am a highly adaptable person in a fast paced working environment as well as team player with strong dynamics. Being someone who is keen in taking chances and opportunities, I decided to graduate a semester late and deferred the semester in 2011 to have an internship in Allen & Gledhill. As an intern, I took the opportunity to develop good working relations with my co-workers as well as relations between departments. I have been able to learn a great deal more about the group dynamics through tapping into their knowledge and experience than I would have otherwise.

During my academic journey in National University of Singapore, modules such as Statistical Methods in Finance and Bayesian Statistics have taught me the various methods in calculating as well as visualizing the abstract concept of risk with various computer programmes. With that, I have become comfortable with using computer programmes in handling tasks. Being a highly adaptable and open minded person has allowed me to undertake various special which require elaborate conceptualization and problem-solving skills. To further develop my research and analysis skills, for example, I’ve taken and passed the level one CFA examination during my final year in NUS, which has served to consolidate my understanding of various analyst tools and industry practices.

I am currently an investment adviser in Prudential Assurance Company in Singapore and has been in the financial services industry since 2013. I have been giving advises to clients and maintain their portfolio since then.
