Yan Taumin graduated summa cum laude from HEC Lausanne with a Bachelor of Science in Economics in 2015. His intensive exposure to finance and econometrics triggered his interest in quantitative finance. Before his final year of undergraduate study, he interned at Bank Julius Baer & Co. Investment Consulting desk, where he created a personalized reporting system for an UHNWI client. Later, Yan conducted a research project on the impact of the number of children in the household on its revenue exploiting regression analysis methods. This project further motivated Yan to join the MSCF program to combine his knowledge in statistics and macroeconomics with quantitative and programming skills. Upon completion of the MSCF program, Yan is seeking a career in structuring or risk modeling and management.
