Paul was born in Germany but grew up in Shanghai and Moscow. He moved to London to experience living in the West and to pursue a BSc in Accounting & Finance at LSE. Paul heard about AIC through his senior friends at LSE and joined the team as a Logistics Officer in his first-year. The impressive backgrounds of the speakers in attendance impressed him the most and prompted him to continue his involvement in the society, becoming Co-President the following year. During the summer after his first year at LSE, he interned in the Private Debt team of a Swiss Asset Manager. Outside of university, Paul actively follows the NBA, Formula 1 and European football likes. A perfect evening consists of spending time with friends over good food or kitesurfing in the North Sea.
