Max WalkerApplied Security Analysis

Max Walker is a first year MS student in the Applied Security Analysis Program, and will be completing his BBA Degree in the spring of 2019.

This past summer he worked at Eastbay Capital, a TMT long/short equity hedge fund, in New York run by an alum of Wisconsin. Here he worked as a summer research analyst focused on researching companies in the marijuana industry. In addition, he completed a long and short pitch for the PM as potential investments for the fund. This internship has solidified Max’s thoughts that he wants to land a research job out of college.

When not in the classroom or library, Max enjoys hanging out with friends on the lake, playing basketball, and board games. He is also an avid puzzler and painter and often says if he wasn’t in finance he would be a painter. Max is excited to be a part of ASAP and continue his professional development.
