In the dynamic and complex world of finance, Matthew Lyberg stands out as a paragon of analytical prowess and innovative strategy. Currently serving as the Director of Quantitative Development at Manulife Investment Management, Matthew’s role, based in Boston, Massachusetts since April 2023, is the latest achievement in a career defined by a deep commitment to the intersection of quantitative analytics and investment management.

Matthew’s journey in finance is rooted in a solid academic foundation. He began by earning a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from Boston University Metropolitan College, where he graduated cum laude. Demonstrating a relentless pursuit of knowledge, Matthew further honed his expertise at Carnegie Mellon University, earning a Master of Science in Computational Finance. There, he delved into the complexities of machine learning and quantitative investing — disciplines that have become cornerstones of his professional life.

Matthew’s career path is characterized by a series of progressively challenging roles, each marking an expansion in his expertise in quantitative analysis and investment strategy.

A notable chapter was his tenure as a Quantitative Researcher at NDVR, Inc., from December 2021 to April 2023. In the heart of Boston, he worked alongside a team of quant Ph.D.s, investment advisors, and tech entrepreneurs. Together, they developed innovative digital solutions aimed at revolutionizing the wealth management industry. This role not only underscored Matthew’s skills in quantitative investing and portfolio management but also showcased his ability to integrate cutting-edge technologies like Apache Airflow and Amazon Web Services (AWS) into the finance sector.

Before joining Manulife Investment Management, Matthew had a brief but impactful stint at YieldX (now FNZ), where he served as a Quantitative Analyst from July 2021 to November 2021. Here, he played a crucial role in revolutionizing fixed income investing through the use of AI-powered analytics and smart digital workflows on a scalable platform.

One of Matthew’s significant career milestones was at Acadian Asset Management, where he held the position of Senior Vice President, Director of Performance Attribution for over nine years. His tenure at Acadian was marked by his involvement in various quantitative analytics and strategy roles, contributing significantly to the firm’s position as a global, quantitative investment manager.

Earlier in his career, Matthew demonstrated his versatility and breadth of skills during his time at State Street, where he engaged in multiple roles, including Global Markets Researcher in Currency Management and Senior Performance Analyst in Wealth Manager Services. His work here involved delivering research in investor behavior, global asset allocation, risk management, and foreign exchange to investment managers and asset owners.

Matthew’s career also encompasses roles outside the traditional finance sector, such as his position as a Customized Tour Consultant at EF Education and his time as a Fulbright Scholar in Ukraine. These experiences, particularly in documentary photography, reflect the diversity of his interests and his ability to adapt to various environments and challenges.

Through each phase of his career, Matthew Lyberg has consistently demonstrated a profound understanding of the financial landscape, marked by his expertise in currency management, machine learning, data engineering, and quantitative analytics.
