About Matt

I hold a double Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Economics from the University of Western Australia, as well as an MSc in Banking and Finance from King’s College London, where I graduated with first-class honours. Prior to my graduate education, I worked in corporate strategy for a multinational tech company.

I am studying for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation, having completed the level one exam, and am a current candidate for the level two exam. My co-curricular activities included captaining a team in the CFA Research Challenge, where we placed third nationally. I am also a member of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI), having completed the Capital Markets Programme, with a focus on Securities and Derivatives.

Away from the office, I am an avid traveller and runner, often combining the two. I am a member of London Midnight Runners, and have hiked through Iceland, Morocco, New Zealand, and hope to climb Mont Blanc later this year.
