Victor Liao

Principal
Toughest professional challenge?

Joining Parallel with the goal to develop my own client relationships while supporting a family; feeling like an entrepreneur!

Toughest client challenge?

Explaining the difference between stocks and bonds to my elderly parents, then turning around and trading shorts on $300 million worth of residential mortgage-backed securities for another client.

Favorite activities outside of work?

Playing touch rugby on Sundays and utilizing San Francisco as our family playground.

What was your most terrifying experience?

Seeing the birth of my first child and realizing I was a dad; it was equally terrifying and wonderful at the same time.

What random skill would you like to have?
