• About ME

    Nicholas Fainlight is the Premium and Membership Sales Intern with the Charlotte Hornets and is obtaining a Bachelor of Business Administration at Queens University of Charlotte.

    Nicholas Fainlight is a student at Queens College, where he is studying finance and business. He has been fascinated with finance from an early age due to his upbringing outside of New York City with family members involved in the industry. Nicholas still reads the Wall Street Journal nearly every morning. He also enjoys exploring a diverse portfolio of other news sources to stay up-to-date and informed. Since taking his first Economics class in high school, Nick has had a passion for the subject and knew he wanted to pursue a career in that field. One of the most important things about making an impact, he has found, is being able to operate beyond the simple quantitative analysis portion of the topic. Nicholas Fainlight believes it is important to be able to speak up in conversation and remain eager to learn through experience.

     

    Nicholas previously interned with the Charlotte Hornets national basketball team, which combined his interests of both sports and finance. He worked as the Premium and Membership Sales Intern, where he built a repertoire of sales skills, while putting his financial smarts to use and helping the team form key partnerships and a steady support base. Nick recently graduated from Queens College with a Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA), and is eager to put his experience and knowledge to good use with a career in the finance industry.

     

    Currently, Nicholas Fainlight is pursuing a Master of Arts at the University of Chester. His focus is on entrepreneurial management. Nicholas is also working at Pomerol Partners as a junior consultant.

     

    Nicholas Fainlight is interested in many areas of finance, but in particular he is fascinated with financial technology (fintech) such as personal finance apps, and anything involving an element of uncertainty. Some of his favorite finance topics are futures trading, the alternative energy market, and the valuation of sports teams and corporations.
     

    What excites Nicholas the most about futures trading is its unpredictable nature; this area of the stock market involves making predictions on future market trends based on past trends and whether or not a commodity’s value will change, so there’s a huge element of uncertainty to it. Another area of the stock market that interests him is the sustainable energy market because of the potential risks and rewards associated with alternative forms of energy. Nicholas is also fascinated with how sports teams are assigned value by economists and how volatile that value can be.

     

    In addition to finance, Nicholas Fainlight is also an avid sports fan. He was a competitive swimmer in high school and has competed in many other sports throughout his life as well, including football, rugby, basketball, baseball, and water polo.

     

    Swimming has become Nick's favorite sport and is, along with finance, one of his greatest passions. He started out playing baseball, then tried out football in middle school and high school, and eventually got involved with swimming as a freshman when he realized he wanted a change and his coach suggested he check out water polo. As he got to know the other students involved with water polo, he realized many of them were on the swim team, so he decided to join, which ended up being one of the best decisions of his life. He formed incredible bonds with his teammates, who became like family members. In addition to loving the support he received from his team, Nicholas Fainlight also loves the beauty of the sport- how smooth and fluid it is, and how precise one’s movements must be to master their technique.

     

    The best thing about sports, for Nick, is being part of a team and all of the lessons and expectations that go along with that. He is so grateful that sports, particularly swimming, taught him discipline and hard work, shaping him into the person he is today. Sports really brought him out of his shell and gave him a confidence he had never possessed. Nicholas Fainlight is a big fan of Michael Phelps and the Chelsea FC team.
