LinkedIn Profile

I first started working in financial services in 1987 within the Eurobond Dept of Williams De Broe, a stockbrokers. Over the next 25 years I worked at a number of leading banks, asset managers and brokers in OTC and listed derivatives sales.  

I was a founding member of Orbis in September 2013, introducing clients via contacts I had worked with in my previous roles. I focused on developing these, and subsequently continuing to add new accounts, whilst also overseeing the Financial Services Desk. My clients now include leading global exchanges, asset managers, data providers, brokers and regulators located in Europe and the Far East.  

I am an avid reader of all things related to the global macro economy and financial markets, in addition to political and military history. I also enjoy following and watching a range of sports, particularly rugby.
