Matthew holds a BSc in Economics, Econometrics and Finance from the University of York. Before joining London Business School, he worked as an investment analyst at one of Europe’s largest asset management firms for three years, and successfully passed all three levels of the CFA exams. He completed a two-year graduate programme which allowed him to rotate around the equities, fixed income and private equity divisions of the firm. Upon completion of this graduate programme Matthew secured a job within the tactical asset allocation team and was the lead analyst for the multi-asset division’s equities steering group.
Matthew decided to pursue a Masters in Finance to strengthen his bottom-up technical analysis, as this is something he particularly enjoyed throughout his time within the equities division. He chose LBS as he was attracted to the collaborative nature of the school, and appreciates how the diverse culture can enhance both his personal and professional life.
In addition to being a student ambassador, Matthew is an active member of the Investment Management Club and enjoys managing his personal trading portfolio. In his spare time he can be found playing tennis, hiking and socialising with his fellow classmates.
