Marquette students had an opportunity to hear from a recent graduate about the trends in the asset management industry and the career opportunities from Dan Leibforth, VP/Associate Banker with Citi Private Bank.
During the class meeting with the AIM seniors he talked about how his team approaches the asset allocation decision. He spent time to address some of the newest innovations in the investment industry including behavioral finance, smart/strategic beta, and the challenges and opportunities that technology presents.
Dan graduated from Marquette in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree with Finance/AIM and Economics majors. He graduated Cum Laude with Honors and was active in the Financial Management Association, Marquette Economics Association, Alpha Sigma Nu (Jesuit Honor Society), and Club Baseball.
Dr. David Krause, AIM program director commented, “It was wonderful that Dan was able to address the AIM students and the FMA club. Bringing young alumni back into the classroom confirms the importance of many of the topics that are included within the curriculum. Dan – and the other AIM alumni – are doing their part to continue to support the Marquette network and help the current students. They support our mission and are great examples of the quality of the Marquette alumni network."
