My name is George Rimakis. I graduated in May 2014 from the University of Connecticut's School Of Business. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business, majoring in Finance.
In 2013, I spent both my summer and winter breaks interning in Stamford, CT at a company called Tronox. I had the privilege of being able to work with the Risk Management and Corporate Audit team, where I gained valuable experience and learned a great deal about the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. It was a good chance to brush up on my accounting, and see the ins and outs of a multinational corporation.
At the University I took engaging and useful Finance courses relating to: Futures and Option, Risk Management, Investments and Securities, Global Financial Management, Project Valuation and many others.
After completing my Finance degree, I began my career with FactSet Research System, located in Norwalk, CT. At FactSet, I have been able to combine both my academic background and my personal interest in technology. Shortly after joining FactSet, I began pursuing the globally recognized Chartered Financial Analyst® designation. After three years of study and examination, I was awarded CFA® designation in September, 2018.
