Simon Goldman, Investment Director, Albion Capital

After almost eight years at Goldman Sachs JBWere in Australia, Simon completed a neuroscience PhD and postdoc in Cambridge, and worked for several years in the UK biotech startup sector. He brings deep and diverse skills to management of life-science investing for the UCL Technology Fund. ?It?s crucial to have a detailed understanding of the technology you?re investing in, and coming from an academic background means that I thoroughly enjoy getting stuck into cutting-edge science, but I also appreciate the broader investment and market context.? ?Turning discoveries into real-life impact is all about risk management both in terms of the technical hurdles you face, as well as the financial and operational risks. Crucially, it?s also about building real, long-term relationships.? ?I?m passionate about the role we can play in improving people?s lives globally, and I?m honoured to be working with world-leading academic teams at UCL who are making this happen.?
