Curriculum Vitae – Jacob Senholt

Professional profile

I offer a sharp analytical mindset, and years of experience with political and economic analysis. I have solid practical proficiency with project planning and management, critical analysis and report writing. I am likewise very proficient at doing research, and conduct data collection and processing.

My personal mindset: I am ambitious, analytical, determined, systematical, and have a quick perception. I am an initiator, I work independently and in teams and I have an eye for quality.

My trading experience has taught me to keep a cool head, to manage risk in order to survive downswings; it has sharpened my analytical mindset, and taught me patience for the right market conditions.
