Product description

About the Author

Muzaffar Khan retired from a successful career on Wall Street, having worked in trading and asset management at Citibank, Barclays Capital and Moore Capital. He went on to become the vice-chairman of ACOPS, an international environmental charity, and further study, both independently and at the London School of Economics where he completed an MSc in Development Studies.

Muzaffar later reconciled his two interests - finance and the environment - by joining Man Group Plc as a Consultant to its latest environmental venture, Man ECO. Since leaving Wall Street, he has also coached and mentored a number of people ranging from CEOs to students. Muzaffar has a BSc degree in Industrial and Business Economics from the LSE, and an MA in English Literature from King's College London.

Jan Sramek trades EM Macro at Goldman Sachs, London, having spent his childhood and university years by experimenting with the why, what and how far, and generally hacking life. In his final year at university, he wrote a book about his experience with bending rules and pushing boundaries of what's possible. Shortly thereafter, Financial Names named him the youngest ever person on the annual list of 100 Rising Stars of Financial Markets.

Before university, Jan broke the world A-level record and was named named Olympic hope in handball. He then read Mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge before transferring to the London School of Economics - in order to found 4 start-ups, a charity and work in the City. Despite working and interning in trading and research at Goldman Sachs, Marshall Wace, AKO Capital, Barclays Capital, UBS and Deutsche Bank instead of studying throughout university, Jan won almost £100,000 in scholarships, and graduated with a First in Mathematics and Economics.
