Before joining LBS, Emmanuel worked for MD Partners, a financial advisory and boutique M&A firm focused on SMEs and startups in Mexico City, where he advised multi-industry high growth companies and analysed, structured and pitched investment opportunities to raise capital and potentialise companies’ growth.

He decided to pursue the MiF programme at LBS to keep cultivating his financial knowledge and equip himself with the best tools to tackle any business affair in his path towards becoming an investment professional and trusted advisor. LBS’s prestige and longstanding traditions in finance, alongside a rigorous curriculum led by world-class faculty, makes the LBS MiF an easy pick to continue his studies and progress his career. He believes one of LBS’ greatest assets is the collaboration behind everything happening here; classes are designed to develop a cross-learning experience where you are teamed with people from a wide range of professional backgrounds and cultures to enrich the academic content and help you enhance your leadership skills. Additionally, there are many initiatives to get involved with and contribute to, from student-led clubs to community projects or promoting your own idea.

Emmanuel is committed to connect to the PE/VC ecosystem in London to strengthen ties between students and players in the industry. Aside from professional life, Emmanuel enjoys outdoor activities such as cycling, football and hiking. Emmanuel is a passionate solo traveller, always ready to grab his backpack and discover what a new destination and connections have to offer.
