Ms. Ruizhi Qin was born and raised in Shanghai, China. In 11th grade, a rare full-scholarship exchange opportunity brought her to the United States for the first time. This experience inspired her to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Mathematics at Yale. Given her studies at Yale and her internship at UBS Investment Bank, Ruizhi honed her financial skills which helped her earn her CFA designation. After Yale, Ruizhi worked as a strategy consultant at Boston Consulting Group; she applied her skills acquired at BCG to help rescue her own family’s business. These unique experiences gave Ruizhi three important qualities: Cultural aptitudes as both a Chinese and global citizen; professional capabilities in finance and strategy; and diverse perspectives from working for both large and small companies.
