Frederick completed his PhD research question looking at amending the Black-Scholes-Merton (BSM) option pricing model to elevate the performance of risk reversals in forecasting the directional change in the underlying exchange rates. He took a teaching fellow position at the School of Finance and Management, SOAS University of London, in Quantitative and Analytical Techniques for Managers and Research Methods in Accounting and Finance.

Frederick got to work with students from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds. He is committed to working with the students to ensure they engage with the subject in a way that builds confidence and understanding.

Frederick built a comprehensive career in finance as a Chartered Certified Accountant and IT before his time in academia. This began with completing the Series 7 examinations with Merrill Lynch and culminated with becoming Director of IT for several financial organisations.
