Hi, I’m Sam and I am currently on my second semester of the MFIN program at Tippie. I initially started my college education pursuing an undergraduate degree in Computer Info Systems with a desire to eventually build my career around cybersecurity, but towards the end of my four years I began exploring the investment world and fell in love with every aspect of it. My goal with being in the Hart Fund is to tackle the challenge of understanding and navigating fixed-income securities which I believe has an essential and dominant influence over the market, as well as to gain experience over managing a portfolio alongside a team of talented individuals.
