Malcolm graduated from Imperial College in 1982 and worked as a power engineer specialising in transmission network theory and design before moving into the technology and modelling side of financial services in the mid 1980s when he spent time at MIT as an industry representative. He has designed numerous large-scale systems for capital markets and run a small hedge fund before moving into a consulting and advisory role in his own specialist consultancies.
