Darren Fernandez

I have been working in finance throughout my whole career, currently as a data quant, and also in Asset reporting earlier this year for a large pension company, but prior to this overseeing accounting work for Lloyds, working for the largest clearing house within the risk department and before that fund accounting for a large US bank, having started out a third party administrator where i gained more knowledge in technical dealing and cash management.

My career path has been varied but this has allowed me to pick up alot of knowledge which helps me quickly get to grips with new challenges and project work with less of a learning curve.
