About Your Tutor


My name is Edyta and I’m the founder of the Derivatives Lab™. I’m an ex-corporate lawyer turn entrepreneur. I have over a decade of experience working in the financial services industry. I started as a trainee in a law firm and qualified into commercial litigation. It took me less than a month post qualification to figure out that I was not cut for private practice.

When searching for my next adventure, I came across a niche of lawyers specialising in trading agreements and derivatives; like tax lawyers, they seemed to be representing a very different breed. Soon enough, the vision of becoming a legal counsel working for a global investment bank became a dream and I decided to pursue a career in this field.

Fast forward several years and I was managing a busy team of ISDA negotiators and paralegals at Credit Suisse in Poland. Keen to explore what the buy-side has to offer, I then moved to Man Group plc, the world’s largest publicly listed hedge fund, to manage their Prime Brokerage and Trading Legal Team in London. Today, I have my own consultancy business where I work with a variety of clients across the globe.

Derivatives Lab Academy is a courses platform offering access to industry know-how which cannot be acquired through traditional academic means. It is dedicated to all of you out there hungry for more knowledge in this field and interested in exploring different viewpoints.

We live in the information overload era, constantly distracted and pulled in different directions, feeling like there is not enough time in a day to consume it all. Ignorance is no longer a bliss, it’s a decision. We have to be selective. You get to choose what and how to learn, and at what pace. Why not join me on this journey and replace common knowledge with unique knowledge?
