How did you personally become involved in fintech?
I have always been interested in the intersection of finance, data and technology. I studied computer science and econometrics at Dartmouth, and then worked as a “quant,” building models to select stock investments. After Stanford business school, I helped build the investment models at Nutmeg in its early days, worked at PIMCO in asset allocation, and at Pacific Life as Director of Risk Management of multi-asset variable annuities. I saw the opportunity to help retail investors and financial advisors better understand risk from my experience in investment management and creating solutions for some of the largest institutions in the world.
