Kevin Shan

  • Degree Programme: MBA
  • Global Nationality: Chinese

Kevin has five years’ work experience in China's asset management sector. He started in sales at HSBC Retail Banking and Wealth Management, moved to sales team management, and eventually became an entrepreneur, co-founding his own asset management firm, Credit Frontier, with the vision of tailor-making offshore fixed-income products for affluent Chinese investors. Kevin realised that his passion did not lie in investment management and decided to come to LBS, where he wants to explore more opportunities beyond traditional finance. He wants to transform from a sales expert into a tech-savvy strategist, so is taking LBS courses on Digital Strategy and Digital Investing, as well as undertaking Python and machine learning modules.

Kevin received a BA from Middlebury College in the US, where he majored in philosophy and German. He still harbours his college dream of becoming a philosophy teacher to help human beings unlock the deep mysteries of their lives.
