Jawwad Farid "bullworth"
The list author says: "I was introduced to Finance when I built my first financial model in Lotus 123 at the tender age of 14 years. Since then, spread sheets, financial models and financial analysis have been the main stay of my work. For a more interesting history of all the mean and nasty thing I have been upto take a my blog that acts as my primary ranting and blood pressure control mechanism.

Over the last 17 years, I haved worked as an actuary, built and implemented insurance, risk and treasury systems as part of my day job, valued derivative contracts and taught in Karachi, Dubai, Riyadh, Bangkok, Bahrain and Singapore on the Alchemy, Consultnomics and S P Jain platforms.

If you would like to read more from my desk, I am a regular contributor at Oil Insights, Desi Back to Desh, Learning Corporate Finance and Startup Insights where I follow Oil, Risk, Finance, living in Pakistan and starting up as an entrepreneur."
