A maven is a deeply trusted expert in a particular field, who seeks to pass knowledge on to others. The word maven comes from the old Hebrew, meaning “one who understands”, based on an accumulation of knowledge. This is the word that best defines Paul Mears an experienced business, serial entrepreneur and financial professional who has held a number of senior positions and finance roles in large and small public and privately owned companies located in several countries. Paul is the CFO and a co-founder of MoneyMailMe and manages the Middle Office at the Hedge Fund the Cambridge Strategy.

Paul started his career working in traditional pure accounting and finance and progressed into various commercial finance management roles. A passionate learner obsessed with accumulating knowledge, Paul has evolved from accounting into business management, and finally into becoming a passionate serial seed and angel investor. He has invested as a business angel in more than 20 companies, with a focus in the fields of cutting edge Biotech, Med Devices, Fintech, Technology and Applications with the investee companies located in the UK, France, Sweden, and USA. Paul is particular passionate about Biotech, particularly stem cell therapy and other areas of healthcare and medicine where he sometimes strays from his usual strict investment rules when he is sees the possible long term benefits to medicine from research that companies may be performing, even if the company he invests in may not be the one who ultimately makes the investors return.

With a pure Mathematics Degree (First Class Honours) gained at the Loughborough University of Technology, Paul defines himself as a man of data, and mathematics, but also a person that is curious and likes to focus on new adventures, while managing a sensitive balance between financial management, corporate finance and monitoring risk versus reward.
