The people behind Megabuyte

Megabuyte is 100% a product of its people - blue-chip financial analysts, but also lateral thinkers who aren't afraid to be maverick in expressing their opinions.  Plus a mix of grey hairs and bright young things.  The result?  'Real world', rather than 'cookie-cutter', intelligence that makes our services so highly-valued.

The people who make Megabuyte happen​

The larger Megabuyte team is a fast-expanding family of analysts, contributing writers, customer support, communications and “techies”, all of whom play a key role in delivering the Megabuyte service.
