Juan Carlos holds a Bachelor of Economics degree in Economics with a concentration in Finance from Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM). Before joining London Business School, he worked as junior portfolio manager at AFORE Sura, a large pension fund in Mexico with over $30bn in AUM. Juan Carlos was part of the equity team, where he generated investment ideas based on fundamental research for both country allocation and stock selection. Prior to joining Sura, he worked in equity research as a TMT analyst at Bank of America in Mexico City.
Juan Carlos decided to pursue the Masters in Finance at LBS mainly due to its academic excellence, social awareness, cultural diversity and strong student community. The programme’s flexibility offered him the tools to customise a study plan that would enable him to develop the additional technical and soft skills necessary to become a well-rounded finance leader and to excel both in his personal and professional endeavours.
In addition to being a student ambassador, Juan Carlos is an active member of the Investment Management Club, Social Impact Club and Football Club. In his spare time, he enjoys cycling, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
