Raoul Bascon serves the clients of Traditions Wealth Advisors as the Financial Computing Intern—beginning in May of 2018. In that role, he has verified financial data and produced reports that Brien uses to help illustrate each client’s financial status. He has also helped the firm transition to a new financial software system that will automate much of his role’s functions and provide additional value for our clients.
Raoul received a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from Texas A&M University in 2017 and is currently enrolled in a Master of Financial Management program, expecting to graduate this May. He completed the Trade, Risk and Investment Program (TRIP) in August 2018, which gave him exposure to the energy industry with two internships (one at an oil company and the other at a financial derivatives firm) and countless hours of interactions with industry professionals. After graduation, he will begin work as an Analyst for Munich RE Trading (the location of his second internship through TRIP), focusing on valuing weather derivatives.
Beyond work, Raoul volunteers with St. Thomas Aquinas and has been involved in a number of student organizations at St. Mary’s Catholic Community and Texas A&M University. He also is engaged to be married on June 29th of this year. After the wedding, Raoul and his bride-to-be, Carolyn, will live in Brenham: the halfway point between his work in The Woodlands and her Master Program for Professional Counseling in Round Rock.
When he’s not driving, studying or working, you can find him playing volleyball, training for a marathon, praying, or enjoying the company of friends.
