Experienced. Proven. Effective
Having over 30 years of experience in the corporate finance and fund management world, with much of those spent in hands on managerial
positions, my experience is invaluable for organisations looking to raise their profile, build and develop business.
The Managing (and founding) Partner of
Stratton Street Capital LLP for 14 years, I specialised in Alternative Investment Funds.
SSC developed an enviable track record in Equity Long Short Japan, Fixed Income including the launch of the first Renminbi Bond
Fund and two UCITS Funds and setting up Managed Accounts including a KAG structure.
In what was a particularly testing period, I managed the partnership through the financial crisis of 2008/09, helped refocus the business
and rebuild it to a $1.6 billion Fund Manager with a strong reputation.
During my time with Stratton Street Capital I served as the Non Executive Director and Independent Director for a number of Hedge Fund
and Investment firms. Today, I am still retained by SSC in an advisory role.
Delivering Excellence as Standard
I have created and maintained key relationships within the industry that prove priceless in aiding with the securing of funds. As evidenced
by the successful fund raising for ProVen Private Equity Ltd, Global Rights Fund II in which roughly 50% of the initial capital
came from institutional investors at launch. With a second closing brought in through relationships developed at this time, ProVen
took a shareholding in a Scandinavian based Venture Capital Group.
I have been FCA Registered, a member of the Securities Institute and completed the INSEAD International Executive Programme in 1999
allowing me to carry out a number of assignments for financial related companies in a consultant/advisory role.
I pride myself on delivering excellent client service that includes advice on all aspects of setting up, managing funds and instigating
marketing drives to achieve an organisations objectives. As my career moves forward I very much view my role less as a practitioner
and more as a sculptor of other groups.
As Chairman of
Alternate Investment Managers Association (AIMA)Next Generation Managers Group in London I support
a series of 9 workshops a year on various aspects of Fund Management. AIMA also runs an Annual Conference for the Group, for which
I advise on content and Chair. I also sit on their Standing Markets Committee and Sound Practices Committee.
Recognised as an industry expert with the ability to offer fund management groups the support and advice they seek to successfully market funds of any nature.
