He is also a CFA charterholder and is one of the Sustainability Community champions for the CFA UK Society, a group that helps drive the community's agenda with the purpose of building a sustainable future.
He decided to take up Masters in Finance, part-time programme at LBS to accelerate his professional growth by filling in the gaps in his technical knowledge and work on his leadership skills while, at the same time, building meaningful connections with the school's diverse and vibrant community. The part-time MIF gives him the flexibility to develop his skills both inside the classroom and while working full-time.
