Investment Research Analyst Assistant
Hi, I’m Chris Repka, the Investment Research Analyst Assistant at Convergence Financial. My background in chess and my deep passion for investments have shaped my journey in the financial industry. I was born and raised in a small town in Slovakia, where my love for chess ignited at the tender age of 9. Coming from a family of chess players, I quickly honed my skills and embarked on a remarkable journey, competing in over 40 countries during my high school years.
After completing my studies, I wholeheartedly pursued my dream of becoming a professional chess player, dedicating two years of my life to the pursuit of excellence in the game. However, an extraordinary opportunity presented itself when I received an invitation to join the prestigious University of Missouri Collegiate Chess Team, recognized as one of the world’s top university chess teams. With a lifelong aspiration to study in the United States, I eagerly accepted the offer and embarked on a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, with a focus on Finance, and graduated in 2023. It was during this transformative period that my passion for investments was ignited, ultimately leading me to retire from professional chess and embark on a career in asset management.
Outside the realm of finance, I find great joy in indulging in a variety of hobbies. From exploring new culinary experiences and trying diverse cuisines to engaging in spirited games of tennis, hiking amidst nature’s wonders, immersing myself in captivating books, and enjoying captivating TV shows, I relish the richness of life’s offerings. These diverse interests, coupled with my international background, enable me to bring a unique perspective to the team at Convergence Financial, and I am thrilled to be part of this dynamic organization.
