Alastair Majury is a highly experienced Senior Business Analyst and Data Scientist with a proven track record of success. Throughout his professional career, Alastair has had extensive experience in a variety of sectors, including planning, developing, implementing and delivering migrations, organisational change, regulatory, legislative, and process improvements. Majury has had extensive experience working for multiple global financial organizations. Through his Senior Business Analyst and Data Scientist services, Majury has also covered the Challenger Bank, Retail Banking, Investment Banking, Wealth Management, and Life & Pensions sectors. Through his decade-long professional career, Alastair Majury has honed his skill set in business analysis and financial services to become one of Scotland’s most successful and trusted analysts. As is the case with most analysts, Majury has worked alongside several leaders and senior managers in order to create long-lasting solutions. Majury’s success throughout his professional career is a testament to his ability to devise pragmatic solutions to support operational functions. Alastair Majury had started out in the financial services industry at HSBC as a market data analyst. This experience quickly led to him becoming an expert in OTC credit derivatives, which led to business analysis. Eventually, Alastair began working with multiple high-profile organizations and financial services corporations to deliver complex requirements and solutions. Majury, as a senior business analyst and data scientist, enjoys the always-changing and fast-paced environment that the industry provides. He draws inspiration from the fact that every single day can be vastly different; he also finds this to be the most rewarding aspect of the job.

Just recently, Alastair Majury passed CISI’s level 4 Derivatives (IAD) module spectacularly. The examination is specifically designed to challenge candidates’ knowledge of the regulations and practices in financial and commodity derivatives, their underlying markets and even the principles of investment strategies. In passing the examination, Alastair has proven his innate knowledge of derivatives, their underlying assets, clearing, delivery and settlements, portfolio research and construction trading, hedging and investment strategies, investment selection and administration and any other special regulatory requirements. This is a tremendous success for Majury and a large step forward in his already storied career. Alastair Majury is responsible for providing analytical services, including data analysis, to companies. Outside of work, Alastair Majury is heavily dedicated to philanthropic work. He is very much involved with a variety of charities and philanthropic organizations, both foreign and domestic. He believes that by working together, we can help make this world a better place.

Instead, Alastair works with as many charities as he possible can in order to gain a greater sense of fulfillment and to help as many causes as possible. He is also very heavily involved with Scotland and thoroughly enjoys traveling his home country. From its sweeping, green hills to its rocky shores and historical landmarks, Alastair believes that Scotland is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and rightfully so.
