Sydney's early career focused mainly on fixed income risk analytics at RBC Global Asset Management in Minneapolis. She carried out stress testing, pricing, analytics and attribution and led the process on liquidity risk. She is now the portfolio engineer for RBC’s Equity Team in Chicago.
"I knew that the MFM curriculum at Minnesota would best prepare me for a career in any area of quantitative finance. I could tell the program leaders truly cared and believed in the program and its students. I heard about the program after the MFM application deadline but wanted to start studying financial mathematics as soon as possible. So I began with the FQF, which had a later deadline. This gave me good preparation for the high level mathematics and statistics courses in the MFM. I love what I do at RBC and the MFM made all the difference!"
