Cole Wasson, CFA, MSF®

Cole Wasson is a former December 2020 valedictorian graduate from the University of Tampa upon earning a Masters in Finance (MSF) and Bachelors in Finance (BS). He was the valedictorian in both his graduate and undergraduate class, twice receiving summa cum laude honors with a cumulative GPA of 4.0. His demanding high school schedule allowed him to skip his freshman year at the University of Tampa and enroll as a sophomore at 18 years of age in 2016. Cole has earned his MSF in the AACSB accredited Sykes College of Business. As opposed to the typical 2-year program, he received his MSF in 1.5 years, graduating with an undergraduate and graduate degree in December of 2020. Throughout his education, he was the recipient of the Delta Sigma Pi Scholarship Award for graduating with the highest GPA in the Sykes College of Business. He is a former Vice President for the Florida Zeta chapter of the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. Cole intends on using his Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation to broaden Suncoast Equity Management’s institutional relationships. He consecutively passed the CFA Level 1 (August 2021) Exam, CFA Level 2 (February 2022) Exam, and recently passed the CFA Level 3 Exam (August 2022) all on the first attempt at 24 years of age. As of November 2, 2022, Cole earned the Chartered Financial Analyst designation, and is an active member of the CFA® Tampa Bay Society.
