Matt Fotherby

Finance & Compliance Training Consultant

Matt’s interest in education stems from his 10 years as an Account Executive looking after Global Hedge Fund and Asset Management clients. He quickly discovered that many of the financial market topics that his clients wanted to learn about were the exact same topics that he was striving to develop a better understanding of himself.

This led Matt to join the coveted Financial Markets Education team at UBS, a unique in-house education team that specialised in running a curriculum of financial market and product classes for both UBS employees and clients. Matt was responsible for building out the client offering; managing programs, creating content and teaching courses.

As financial markets entered a significant period of regulatory change, Matt pivoted to take his client experience and market knowledge to focus on Regulations and Compliance topics.

Matt leverages his time spent as an attendee of training and fuses this with his deep markets knowledge and regulatory expertise to deliver engaging training designed to decipher complexity and equip learners with the knowledge they need to remain compliant and competent within their roles.

Matt leads Raise the Bar’s Finance & Compliance training offerings.
