This week, both of our financial besties are joined by Vivian Tu, who left Wall Street and her role as a JP Morgan trader due to burnout. Embracing a new chapter in the media space, she carried over her financial expertise to build a unique career path. Vivian now offers fun, easily digestible financial advice on social media, aiming to transform “finance into fun-ance” and create an atmosphere where she’s simply chatting with friends on a couch. Her engaging approach has led to partnerships with prominent brands like MetLife, Rent the Runway, Credit Karma, Invesco, and Wealthfront. Vivian is represented by WME and is preparing to launch her first book, “RICH AF,” with Portfolio in 2024. She was also featured at No. 50 on Forbes’ inaugural Top Creators List in 2022.
