About me: Jernej comes from Slovenia, a small country with just 2 million residents. At 19, he moved to San Francisco, where he began his studies, before spending the next three years in London, earning his undergraduate degree in Business and a Masters in Management.

Professionally, he ventured into the banking world in Budapest with Citi, focusing on strategic M&A, ECM and DCM solutions for diverse clients. A year later, he joined a prestigious family office in Frankfurt as an Investment Analyst, working closely with the Chief Investment Officer.

He pursued his dream of studying at LBS, securing a Merit-Based Scholar award. He also serves as a Career Representative, an Alumni and Career Officer within the Student Association and a Student Ambassador.

In his leisure hours, Jernej finds solace in the company of friends and the exhilaration of sports, with a particular passion for running. For him, the art of blending camaraderie with physical activity encapsulates a time well spent!
