Ian Fishwick

Prior to becoming a fellow of the Institute of Actuaries, Ian studied natural sciences at Manchester and at Downing College Cambridge between 1974 and 1984.

He then joined Credit Suisse in 2000 where he worked for seven years before joining Fidelity where he currently works on the fixed income desk. In his spare time, among other things, Ian is a keen golfer and chess player.
