Allan recently completed his MBA at Strathclyde Business School, specializing in Finance. Key elements of his coursework were Financial Accounting, Financial Management and Analytical Support for Decision Making. Following on from this, he is now studying for the CIMA qualification, taking the Master’s Gateway route. Allan has worked in Commercial roles for two global brewers and is currently employed in Utilities in Scotland. His interest in Finance was kindled by reading Malkiel’s “A Random Walk Down Wall Street,” and perhaps counter intuitively, this has inspired him to take more of an interest in technical analysis (after being firmly on the side of Fundamentals). He is particularly interested in the Equity Risk Premium and its importance to finance. Allan lives near Edinburgh, with his wife and son.
