Courtney Cytryn ’14, a mergers and acquisitions global data analyst at Bloomberg News, was recently featured on Bloomberg’s live radio show, “Bloomberg Markets,” for the fifth time. During the segment, titled “SoftBank’s Vision Fund Raises $93 Billion,” Cytryn discussed the week’s venture capital deal news.
On the show, Cytryn and her colleagues examined SoftBank’s Vision Fund, which recently closed an initial commitment of $93 billion. Cytryn detailed the results of the fund when analyzed through Bloomberg’s Private Equity Portfolio Exposure (PEXP) function, which allows analysts to screen a general partner and understand their investment exposure by looking at company region, sector and fund strategy, as well as peer comparison. She also was featured on the show in March, on April 7, April 21, and in May.
Cytryn, who majored in economics, launched her finance career at Bloomberg upon graduation from HWS. As a student, Cytryn completed two internships at Markit, a global financial information and services firm, in addition to an internship at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
On campus, she served as president of Community Council for Potter Dormitory, an ambassador for the Salisbury Center, and was a member of William Smith Congress, the Leadership Institute, the Seneca7 Club, Operation Smile and the Laurel honor society. She served as an orientation mentor, worked in the Office of Admissions, was a representative on the Honors Committee and studied abroad in London, England.
