Prior to joining the firm, Matthew worked at the Royal Bank of Scotland Group (RBS), where he was responsible for developing the valuation policy and techniques in relation to funding exposures in the Treasury department. Before that, he was Head of Independent Valuations of the Capital Resolution division of RBS, which held exposures deemed to be outside the bank’s continuing risk appetite due to complexity, asset class, liquidity, counterparty or geography. In this role, he led the independent valuation, pricing and modeling of vanilla and exotic products across multiple asset classes, notably equity, fixed income, rates and credit. In his previous roles, Matthew has also worked at EY, where he qualified as a Chartered Accountant, and in the Financial and Product Control department at ABN Amro, covering the equity exotics derivative trading desk.
