2020 - Mason Taykandy
My name is Mason Taykandy, and I joined Simon Fraser University in the Fall semester of 2016. Upon graduation, I hope to pursue a career in the area of thematic investment analysis, or perhaps in macroeconomic policy analysis. Since being accepted into the Economics Honors Program at Simon Fraser University, I have had the opportunity to gain extensive knowledge of the economy from an individual’s perspective, as well as from a collective perspective. Enrolling in various courses pertaining to Macroeconomics is what really sparked my interest in Finance. Specifically, being aware of how different macroeconomic policies impact certain industries, how macroeconomic forces impact individual firms, and which theories or technical analysis tools are useful in painting a clear image of what exactly is dictating certain trends in various business sectors. My hobbies include political economics, portfolio management, hockey, and hip-culture. In the future, I would love to pursue a career in politics and empower as many people as I possibly can!
