Laura Sanchez - President

Hi everyone! I am Laura, a second year Mathematics and Physics student passionate about the investment industry. Having had experiences in Trading with Goldman Sachs, and Investment Banking at h Citi, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, and UBS, I realized that a more dynamic industry where you can apply strong analytical skills in making decisions that influence the markets on a daily basis was a better fit for me, so I am now interning at Wellington Management for their Investment Research Program. On my limited free time, I am also studying to become a CFA, and enjoy sports and reading.

Harrison Knowles - VP of Research

Hi everyone. I’m Harrison and I’m going into my final year studying Mathematics at UCL. I’m fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to learn about investment banking and global markets on the HSBC spring week program, and I am now looking forward to the summer where I’ll be interning with UBS in their Sales & Trading division. I’m very happy to say that I am the VP of Research for UCLHF society, and I am very excited to see some of the analysis that will be put into the work we’ll do here.

Jonathan Zhu - VP of Partnerships

Hi, I am Jonathan Zhu, a secondary market enthusiast studying IMB at UCL School of Management. I have previously interned at Parantoux Capital Limited, an HK-based L/S Equity Hedge Fund, where I attended institutional investor meetings and provided trade executions for a portfolio manager. I found the moment that my investment recommendation has generated significant return is extremely satisfying. That is why I am interested in Hedge Funds because I want to work in the most efficient environment where decisions can be effectively rewarded. My role in society is Vice President of Partnerships. I am keen to get in contact with some of the most prominent Buy-side firms, introducing them to provide insightful events for our members.

Amy Gardner - VP of Recruitment

Hi guys! I’m Amy and I’m currently in my second year studying economics. My main interests are in equities, so I’m looking forward to spending my summer at Invesco as a Global Equities intern. I’m really excited to be the Head of Recruitment for UCL Hedge Fund society this year and look forward to speaking with many of you!
