I am an accountant with 38 years’ experience across financial services, initially with an insurance company with both general business and pensions. From there I moved to consultancy, first in insurance and then the investment management industry, where I have worked for more than 20 years. My time in investments has also included a five year period leading institutional product management for a securities services firm. I have consulted across outsourcing, process improvement, M&A, finance, fund development and product development. Today my main focus is the funds arena and associated regulatory change.
