Associate Director, Corporate Finance at Livingstone Partners
Startupbootcamp FinTech London Mentor
A Cambridge Engineer by training, but a corporate finance AD by profession specialising in Media & Technology. Previously at Deutsche Bank and Nomura, I work with CXOs and shareholders on strategic decisions – whether that be reshaping the company, fundraisings, mergers, defence manuals or investor relations messaging.
I’m keen on helping FinTech startups grow in a commercial manner where an understanding of the competitive landscape and what larger firms are doing is key. My week usually involves speaking with mid-sized companies looking to evolve as well as speaking with large organisations and PE/ VCs that wish to acquire/ invest.
In a former life I’ve worked on special projects which have involved working with a team of developers to create bespoke software for an investment bank to fulfil anticipated regulatory changes. My favourite areas of FinTech are payments, investment management and fundraising (but I know a bit about ‘change the bank’ too).
