Startupbootcamp FinTech London Mentor
I joined the World of Financial Services in the late 1980s just as regulation began to bite with the first Financial Services Act and over the next two decades watched the world of finance transform completely.
I cut my teeth in a large corporate environment, Jardine Lloyd Thompson, working on advising a corporate portfolio of clients on employee benefit schemes for their staff and protection and investment for the shareholders.
Following completion of an MBA in 2004, I became MD and majority shareholder of a financial services business which we grew and sold to a firm of consolidators in the financial services arena. Finally working for that firm through a fast growth strategy period in their acquisitions department, finding, negotiating and completing purchases of firms on their behalf.
