24 Hours with Matěj Turek, CFA



Employer and Position: Investor & Portfolio Manager, Meridon Funds

Professional Credo: “Walking forward is a series of cleverly prevented falls.”


7:00 - 9:30
My day starts around 7 a.m. with coffee and a bit of reading. Yesterday’s Financial Times, WIRED magazine or a Le Carré novel would all do. After a quick breakfast, I usually walk two of my four kids to school. Around 9:30, I am ready for a day’s marathon of calls, meetings and other intellectual work.

9:30 - 12:00
As portfolio manager of a global equity fund, I spend around 90 minutes a day getting updated on the market developments as well as on the fundamental performance of the cca. 30 companies we invest in. I might also have a client or prospective client meeting in the office or over lunch.

12:00 - 17:00
I almost never skip lunch. I love this moment in the middle of the day when I can enjoy the food as well as a chat with friends, colleagues or business partners. And an early afternoon espresso. As we are a boutique asset manager without separate backoffice, marketing or other similar functions, I might spend a bigger part of the afternoon on business development or even the necessary internal paperwork.

17:00 - 20:00
The boundaries between work and family life are more fuzzy in the afternoon depending on scheduled meetings, conf calls or social events. But on average I call it a day at around 19:30 with a brief wrap-up being the last and indispensable part of my daily routine.
