Matt graduated in Economics from the University of Nottingham, before spending almost a decade at Goldman Sachs in London. Here he gained valuable experience in the derivatives market, moving from back office to playing an instrumental part in the establishment of early electronic derivatives execution to working with derivative sales for institutions and hedge funds.

He then became an independent trader for many years, as well as successfully investing time and resource into promising business ventures.

Matt then returned to the City to become a portfolio manager at a prominent global macro hedge fund, where he managed substantial funds over a five-year term. His significant finance, trading and management experience in growth environments in a range of industries mean Matt brings the perfect blend of leadership qualities and technical management skills to the Aquarius team.
