Why did you join Piacente?
My experience as an equity trader and analyst made me realize that IR is playing an increasingly important role in the success of listed companies. Timely and accurate communication with the market is crucial for companies to leverage capital resources. As the top player in the IR world, Piacente is the best place for me to start my new IR career path.
What aspect of IR do you enjoy most?
I genuinely enjoy combining my financial knowledge and my understanding of our clients’ business fundamentals to formulate clear messages to the capital market. Our clients span various sectors, affording me an excellent opportunity to study different business models across industries.
What is the most important value Piacente provides to its clients?
I believe that the most important value Piacente offers to our clients is providing integrated, tailored IR solutions based on each client’s specific needs. We strive to support our clients proactively.
What part of your background has helped you succeed in IR?
My work as an equity trader in New York has equipped me with deep understanding of the U.S. equity market. I also cultivated professional skills with respect to both the primary and secondary markets through my experience as Investment Banking M&A analyst and equity analyst. My double major in finance and history developed both my quantitative and qualitative mindsets, which fit perfectly with IR’s comprehensive requirements.
