Lecturer: Accounting and Bookkeeping

Amanda teaches Accounting & Bookkeeping. She started her accounting career working for KPMG Peat Marwick, as a Junior Accountant mostly completing small sets of Financial Statements and Tax returns for Estates and Trusts.

Having especially enjoyed her master’s papers in Finance and Taxation (Lincoln University – New Zealand), she published an article in the National Business Review of New Zealand, titled: ‘Commission Mulls Equity Warrants to Hedge Risks’. She moved over to the Investment Banking industry working for BZW who was taken over by ABN AMRO (Sydney, Australia). She worked on the trading floor, supporting traders in an accounting role (middle office) and moved to London where she worked for Deutsche Bank as a Financial Controller - Global Investment Banking – Special Purpose Vehicles (Financial Vehicles).

A lot of very interesting jobs later she landed her dream job of becoming a Lecturer.
