Arzish Baaquie

  • Programme: Masters in Finance full time
  • Nationality: Singaporean

Arzish graduated from National University Singapore with a BBA specialising in finance. Post-graduation, he worked at BNP Paribas, Merrill Lynch and Bloomberg before joining TC Capital – a boutique investment bank which focuses on mergers and acquisitions advisory across southeast Asia. After close to three years of transaction-related work, Arzish joined Smartkarma – a fintech start-up which aims to disrupt the way investment research is collated and distributed. He has built and leads the Special Situations desk, which focuses on event-driven trading ideas.

He arrived at London Business School (LBS) on a co-sponsored scholarship, jointly funded by Smartkarma and the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Arzish chose to apply to LBS because he felt that the MiF presented the perfect mix of academic rigour and networking opportunities in the bustling hub of London. He aimed to fill any gaps in his technical knowledge base and expand the potential client base for Smartkarma across Europe.

Arzish is an avid football player and spectator, often to be found on the football pitches around LBS, at a sports bar viewing the big match or at the Emirates Stadium, watching his beloved Arsenal FC in action. He is a member of the LBS Football Club and the LBS Tech Club.
