Luis Cortes is a 2019 Kennedy-King Chevron Scholar who began his collegiate journey at Diablo Valley College with an intense love of learning, particularly in the field of business and Finance.
"My experiences with financial insecurity have led me to want to learn all I can about finance and empower others to do the same."
Luis has since transferred to the Haas School of Business at the University of California-Berkeley. His academic and career success is evident even as he completes his education at Haas.
In 2018 Luis spent six months as an Equity Research Intern at Penserra Partners in Orinda, CA., and the summer of 2019 as a Hedge Fund Summer Analyst with Kingsford Capital, focusing on quantitative and qualitative research. Currently, Luis is looking forward to his work as a Summer Analyst for the J.P. Morgan Investment Banking Technology Group.
His leadership qualities abound. Cortes was selected to represent the University of California-Berkeley, Haas School of Business at the Goldman Sachs 2nd Annual Hispanic and Latino Leadership Summit in New York City this past summer, and he has earned a spot at the prestigious Forbes Under 30 Summit, which featured some of the brightest scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs in our nation.
"None of this would be possible without the support of Kennedy-King"
