Sharon Kits Kimathi is Editor of Fintech
Futures and Banking Technology since May 2019, having been Deputy Editor at the
International Financial Law Review (IFLR) and a capital markets Reporter at
mtn-i and Global Capital.
Having obtained a Bachelor of Laws degree
at the University of Sussex, Sharon graduated from her Legal Practitioner’s
Course (LPC) as President of the Law Society at City Law School and Winner of
the Young Legal Minds Award, 2012.
This was then followed by permanent
positions as a Paralegal for Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer; Legal Compliance
Associate for Goldman Sachs; and Paralegal at Reed Smith LLP. It was conducting
legal research for fintech clients at the latter which prompted a shift in
career trajectory, away from the legal profession and towards specialist
research and journalism from September 2016.
As part of her retraining, she briefly
moved to Oxford to work as Researcher and Production Coordinator for
Quicksilver Media, the award-winning production company behind Unreported World
and Dispatches, before returning to London to rise through the ranks of
financial journalism. Her personal projects include volunteering as a Party
Manager for the care-home events charity, Magic Me and social justice
initiatives with Liberty Advice Clinic.
