Matt has spent over 20 years as an equity and commodity analyst, following Mining, Chemicals, Energy and Industrials sectors. Starting his career at Warburg Dillon Read (now UBS Investment Bank), he was an equity analyst and also a global strategist for Basic Materials (chemicals, mining, paper, steel, cement/aggregates). Latterly he was global strategist for the Chemicals sector. While at UBS his primary focus was on the growth of India and China and development of materials markets due to structural changes in demand. He used previous economic take-off events in the US, Japan and Korea to model trends in materials demand in China and India. He was then able to apply this work to food and made one of the earliest calls in the market on the importance of fertilisers and agrochemicals in early-2005.

Following UBS, he spent two years in hedge funds before joining GMP Securities (Europe) LLP as a Senior Mining Analyst and latterly Head of European Equity Research.

Matt’s most-recent full-time sell-side role was as Materials & Cyclicals strategist at Haitong. He founded Battery Materials Review in 2018 to improve the provision of information on what he regards as a key segment of the Energy Transition.

Matt has published extensively on the Materials sector as well as the development of key materials and equity price trends associated with secular demand events in raw materials.
