Have worked in Finance for over two decades, as an analyst, and portfolio manager. Been a CFA charter holder for over a decade. Have experience in both alternatives (PE and hedge funds) and standard investments, was a former coordinator for the level 2 CFA review course, and mentored people who sat for the CFA exams. Always enjoyed mentorship, and tutoring is a way to fulfill that.

I'm a fundamental value investor. My very day job is to strip apart financial statements and value companies.

I've sat for and passed the series 7 exam years ago. I'm also a CFA charter holder where I passed each of 3 levels of the exams on my first try. Keep in mind less than a fifth of candidates finish the CFA program within 5 years. I completed in the minimum 3 years.

I analyze businesses on a daily basis. Not just the financials, but the economics and triggers of the businesses.

Tutoring is a great forum to pass on what I learned in over 20 years as an analyst, portfolio manager, and trader.

Series 7

The series 7 exam is the general knowledge exam given to stock brokers. I actually passed this exam when I first entered the industry in the 90s. I also earned my CFA charter in 2004. This is a designation that required 3 6 hour exams given once a year. The material is equivalent to a Masters degree with an emphasis on Finance and capital markets.

Extremely helpful tutor!!!

He was so helpful and gave simple examples that made concepts easier to understand. As a student who has struggled with Econ, he helped me to make sense of complicated topics and concepts. I went through practices quizzes with him and felt much more confident when taking my real quiz.

Susan, 5 lessons with Colum

Colum is a fantastic tutor, and he is extremely knowledgeable with a great personality!

Colum was prepared for the lesson, and we were able to cover many topics such as cash flow, liquidity ratios, Modigliani-Miller model, profitability ratios, and efficiency ratios. Colum has all of the qualities of an exceptional tutor, and he makes the learning process enjoyable. I would highly recommend him because of his extensive expertise in the subject is spectacular.
