About me

My role is to contribute to the suite of investment ideas available to investment managers for inclusion in client portfolios. I work in the research department as part of the equities team, which provides research on a range of UK, US and European companies. Our rigorous approach to investment analysis is designed to identify companies with the right characteristics to deliver superior returns over the long term and hence enhance the performance of client portfolios. My particular area of responsibility is technology and communication services companies. I also sit on the committee that oversees the composition of the equity element of the firm's UK illustrative portfolio, and I Chair the group that scrutinises potential new additions to the team's equity research coverage.

Background/Experience

I have worked as an investment analyst since the 1980s, qualifying as a member of what was then the Society of Investment Analysts in the early 1990s. I am currently a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment. During my career, which has encompassed time working for investment banks as well as in wealth management, I have observed and learned from a number of market cycles. This experience has helped me to evolve my approach to research and make better decisions for the benefit of clients. It has also allowed me to help younger colleagues, both in research and investment management, put contemporary developments into historical perspective - "History does not repeat, but it rhymes".

My interests

I like to play a game that on a good day looks a bit like golf, and I also enjoy fishing and gardening. In the absence of a career as a cricket commentator, my ideal day is one spent at Lord's watching Test cricket with friends while doing The Times crossword.
