I am from Canada and have a Bachelor's with Dean's Honours (85%+ cumulative GPA) and a Master of Accounting. I was on the CPA Canada honour roll for the CPA exam, and will earn my designation once I have accumulated the required hours.

I am working in audit at a Big Four firm in Bermuda, mainly with P&C reinsurance clients.

I have 16 months of full-time co-op work experience through undergrad at Big Four audit and financial reporting at a Canadian asset manager with over $500 billion AUM.

During university I took a variety of finance courses (corporate finance, M&A, PE, equity investments, valuations, financial statistics), but did not perform well on the quantitative section of the GMAT (old).

Looking to pivot into management consulting or buy-side via investment banking.
