About Joachim

Joachim Klement is an investment strategist based in London. Throughout his professional career, Joachim focused on asset allocation, economics, equities and alternative investments. But no matter the focus, he always looked at markets with the lens of a trained physicist who became obsessed with the human side of financial markets.

Joachim studied mathematics and physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, Switzerland and graduated with a master’s degree in mathematics. During his time at ETH, Joachim experienced the technology bubble of the late 1990s first hand through his work at internet job exchange board Telejob.

Through this work, he became interested in finance and investments and studied business administration at the Universities of Zurich and Hagen, Germany, graduating with a master’s degree in economics and finance and switching into the financial services industry in time for the run-up to the financial crisis.

During his career in the financial services industry, Joachim worked as investment strategist in a Swiss private bank and as Chief Investment Officer and Head of Investment Research for independent investment houses.

Research assistants

Mr Stevens - ESG analyst

Mr Stevens is our ESG analyst and is deeply interested in everything he can Eat, Smell and the Girls he meets (ESG). A native of Cornwall, he loves hanging out on the beach and going on long walks through the woods. Because he is a corgi, he has short legs but compensates this deficiency with a big smile and a bright intellect.

Barbie - Food and foodtech analyst

Barbie has always been at home in the kitchen and developed a keen interest in all kinds of foods, but especially meat and dairy products. Barbie covers the food industry for this blog as well as foodtech - though she remains doubtful about meat replacement products like Beyond Meat and the Impossible Burger.
