Ryan Chow, Credit Insurance

In my work, I conduct financial and credit analysis regarding various companies. I am learning something new every day and my team is very helpful and always willing to help me improve my knowledge and skills. I have also been able to apply the many skills I have learned at school, particularly in the analysis of financial statements.
