Mr Peter Wolf

About

I have been a part time Lecturer in Economics at Kingston University since January 2020, following a professional career in London spanning corporate finance, investment and management consulting where I held Board level roles. I also give in-house courses on accounting, investment and banking to new graduate trainees at financial institutions and professional services firms. I am a Chartered Accountant by background. Between 2013 and 2016 I was a Visiting Fellow for professional development at the New College of Humanities, London. From 2017 to 2019 I studied part time for an MA in Financial Economics at Kingston University, graduating with Distinction and an academic prize in November 2019.

During my professional career I worked widely in Europe and the USA, leading or assisting with assignments for corporate clients covering: financial investigations, restructuring, IT systems, performance improvement and venture capital investment appraisal. I have also undertaken industry studies for UK competition regulators. Overall, I gained experience of many different industries but came to specialise in the technology sector and financial services.

My principal teaching subjects are financial economics, investment, capital markets and banking. I also have a great interest in macroeconomics, particularly on the interrelationships between productivity growth, technological change and economic growth according to both mainstream and heterodox growth theories.
