FMA Annual Review 2017


A LOOK AT OUR STUDENTS Zach Spencer is a senior majoring in finance. As a freshman, Zach decided to apply for membership to FMA in its first recruiting season “It was great,” says Spencer, “I was the only freshman in the inaugural class and wasn’t sure what area of finance I wanted to pursue or how to begin preparing for my future. FMA was instrumental in all aspects of my growth, from creating an impactful cover letter to preparing for investment banking interviews. Membership also provided talented peer mentors and opportunities to compete in case competitions.” Zach will continue serving as an executive member of FMA in his senior year while also filling the role as president of the Auburn Student Investment Fund (ASIF). ZACH SPENCER This summer, Zach will intern at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey (STRH) as a Portfolio Management Summer Analyst. Spencer will support analysts in cash flow analyses and underwriting credits for STRH clients. Zach intends to work hard and learn as much as he can by utilizing the skills he has acquired: “I hope to gain a deeper understanding of financial modeling and the underwriting process through my experience this summer.” Zach is looking forward to the continued growth of FMA. “I’m excited to see FMA develop as more talented students are drawn to the organization and our members continue to land impressive spots in the industry. I can only imagine what we will accomplish.” 12 FMA 2017 MAGAZINE
