Nicholas Fainlight is a young professional located in Hartford, CT. Nicholas attended college to earn a bachelor’s degree in finance and business, two of his main interests. Growing up, Nicholas was surrounded by family members who worked in the finance or business industry, so he’s familiar with careers in these fields. From a young age, he was familiar with the events of the finance world and had extensive knowledge about business and finance that was unusual for someone in a younger generation.

After graduation, Nicholas Fainlight has decided to pursue a career involving both business and finance. He hopes to find a way to incorporate both of these passions into one job. Nicholas aims to use his understanding of finance and business to help businesses develop a solid financial plan and achieve financial stability.

Nicholas Fainlight believes that one of the most important things for young professionals to cultivate is their financial education. Most people never receive a formal education on finance even though it’s an integral part of our lives. You need money to survive in the world and you’ll need to work to get money. A greater understanding of your personal finances and how the economy works with help you navigate your way through life.

When not focusing on business and finance, Nicholas Fainlight enjoys sports, either by watching or participating. He also is interested in fintech, alternative energy, and sports technology.
