Guy Fraser-Sampson is a Senior Fellow at Cass Business School, and the author of various best-selling finance books, and is an insightful and resourceful business speaker and facilitator.

Guy has spent 25 years working in the investment industry, with a particular emphasis on strategy, multi-asset class investing, alternative assets and private equity. He has been interviewed repeatedly on radio and television in recent months on the developing sovereign debt crisis, on which topic he has also been in demand as a keynote speaker around the world in locations as diverse as Phoenix and Dubai.

He originally qualified as a lawyer and became an equity partner in a City of London law firm at the age of 26, having already been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a member of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, and a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. In 1986 he left the law and has since gained twenty-five years' experience in the investment arena, particularly in the fields of private equity funds, investment strategy and asset allocation.

For the last five years he has taught post-graduate students at Cass Business School, where he also supervises research projects.

Guy is best known for setting up and running the European operations of US funds manager Horsley Bridge. Previously he lived and worked in the Middle East as Investment Controller with the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority which is generally acknowledged to be the largest investor in the world.

In recent years Guy has developed his abiding interest in investment strategy, portfolio theory and asset allocation, and become recognised as an expert and thought leader in the area, particularly where pension funds are concerned. He has also become an expert on so-called alternative assets, and has written and lectured widely on how these might be accommodated into Multi Asset Class products and portfolios.

Guy is the inventor of the Total Funding Model, by which pension funds may calculate their future liabilities and target rate of return. He has also invented a new way of calculating investment risk which remedies many of the deficiencies of the traditional method. He has previously been responsible for developing many computer models for measuring private equity fund performance, including one specifically for buyout transactions.

Since 2007, he has been a member of the teaching staff at Cass Business School, where he teaches MBA modules on Private Equity and Investment Strategy.

Guy is a highly respected conference chairman and keynote speaker. He is also a prolific writer, supplying articles for every one of Europe's English language pension publications as well as numerous hedge fund and other investment titles, including his influential monthly column in Real Deals, which is read by the private equity community worldwide.

Guy is a prolific media personality, including slots on Radio 4's Today programme.

Guy is the author of four books on finance and investment: Multi Asset Class Investment Strategy, Private Equity as an asset class, and Alternative Assets: investments for a post-crisis world, and No Fear Finance.

He also writes both history and fiction. His first book on the Plantagenets has been nominated for a Royal Society of Literature award and Major Benjy was chosen by the Sunday Times literary festival in Oxford as one of its featured selections. Cricket at the Crossroads: Colour, Class and Controversy is Guy’s third published book.
