Chamath Perera

I am an enthusiastic financial mathematics student with an interest in incorporating sustainable finance in the industry.


I am an undergraduate at Monash University and I am currently in my 3rd and final year. I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science, whilst majoring in financial and insurance mathematics. My goal is to pursue a career as an investment banker or an investment analyst, working in Altiorem will give me the perfect opportunity to gain experience on how the sustainable finance model will work, moreover it would give me the opportunity to learn how to incorporate it in my future line of work. I am currently a mathematics tutor at Cluey learning for children with special learning needs, and I am also a Peer Mentor to first years that are enrolled in a Bachelor of Science degree.
