About me

I am responsible for building out our global offering in alternative investments across all client segments, including high and ultra-high net worth individuals and institutional clients such as charities. I think strategically about the part that a much broader range of alternatives can play in our portfolios, including property, private equity and debt markets, uncorrelated strategies (including hedge funds), philanthropy, impact and emerging asset classes. I am responsible for building new relationships externally and working with teams throughout Investec globally to provide appropriate structures and investment options to suit our different types of clients. I am a member of Investment & Research Office's Leadership Team and sit on the firm's Investment Committee. I also chair the firm's Property Investment Selection Committee and am a member of various other firmwide investment and portfolio management bodies.

Background/Experience

Previously I was responsible for the firm's external fund manager selection and monitoring process and team. This involved scouring the whole globe for the best third party managers to use in our clients's portfolios, across all asset classes including equities, bonds, property and alternatives such as hedge funds, infrastructure and private equity.

My interests

I am heavily involved in my local community, most specifically as a member of the Clapham Common Management Advisory Committee, the body that oversees and guides the management of one of London's most precious open green spaces. I also enjoy keeping fit and travelling far and wide as well as enjoying all that our fantastic capital city has to offer.
