Kyle Fraser-Allen

I am Black-British, London-born to Jamaican and Guyanese parents. However, I feel just as at home walking through the hustle and bustle of Montego Bay as I do walking through any part of East London.

I have had an unconventional route into financial services; I left school at 16 with the ambition and arguably the ability to become a professional footballer having signed a professional contract with Tottenham Hotspur and representing England at various youth levels. In doing so, the opportunity cost was not to take any A-levels and one of the reasons I am so passionate about broadening the industry’s perspective of the characteristics that will make a candidate successful.

I currently work in private credit as an investor, tasked with investment origination, execution and monitoring of private credit transactions across the energy, industrials and utilities sector. However, I started my career in operations within private banking and have worked in several different roles across investment management, including product development and relationship management.

I hold a Master’s in Finance from King’s College London (Yes, the same person that did no A-levels from East London) as well as a few industry qualifications. As alluded to above, I have mandated myself to be as vocal an advocate for increased representation for all types of diversity within the industry, and I am excited to represent the diversity project and to work alongside my fellow ambassadors for this great cause.
