Martyn Turner spent nineteen years in investment banking before moving into consulting and training in 2005. During that time he worked for a number of international investment banks, starting as a bond analyst (Merrill Lynch), through risk management, risk advisory (Paribas) into structuring and sales (Bankers Trust), and has covered interest rates, foreign exchange and commodities.
The common theme during his career has been the extensive use of financial models as a way of exploring ideas and solving problems. His first Excel model to be deployed within a bank was a small value-at-risk system in 1989, since when the scale and complexity has grown with the power of Excel, and includes a multi-currency asset swap system, derivative optimization model and various value-at-risk systems. In addition he has also designed and built models for clients (corporates, supranationals and Central Banks) including cheap/dear analysis and cashflow-at-risk models.
Over the years Martyn has run numerous training seminars (both in-house and for clients), has been a regular speaker at international conferences, and contributed various articles for publication in the financial and commodity press.
In addition to consulting and training, Martyn is an Executive Director of Global Energy Horizons. He received both his BSc in Mathematics and his MSc in Statistics from London University.
