My Story

I started Buyside Focus out of a passion to help others to achieve success in the investment industry.

The hedge fund job search process is anything but clear and structured – it’s very different from recruiting for investment banking and sell-side research. I have a decade of experience on the buy side and have become an expert of the job search process. I founded Buyside Focus to share the career resources I’ve gathered to help you achieve the same success.
