Aytac is a Turkish national. He completed a BSc in Industrial Engineering / BA Economics from Koc University in 2007. He is also a CFA Charterholder and was granted the Jean Monnet Scholarship to study at Cambridge.
Prior to starting the MFin, Aytac was working as a fund manager at AK Asset Management – a subsidiary of Citigroup in Istanbul – where he was managing the fixed income portions of the pension and mutual funds.
After completing the MFin in 2012, Aytac returned to AK Asset Management. He feels that the MFin helped to improve his technical, organisational and communication skills.
Aytac chose the MFin for a number of reasons: the quality of the lecturers, the diversity of the class, the balanced combination between theory and practice, and being part of the world-renowned University of Cambridge.
