About Me

Having qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1997, I worked in a variety of management roles within the financial services industry.  These included three years as financial controller of a futures brokerage house, and two years as head of finance for a private bank and asset manager.

At the beginning of 2008 I took a change of direction, and set up my own practice.

I felt there was an opportunity for me to use my extensive experience gained outside the accountancy profession to advise clients operating within financial services and beyond.  To date I have worked with businesses within the fields of corporate finance, investment banking, securities and commodities broking, investment management, hedge funds, venture capital and private equity.  I am familiar with the realities of working in business and will work with you to identify your needs and satisfy your requirements.

In particular, for firms regulated by the FSA, I can offer ten years’ experience of producing regulatory returns under a wide range of supervisory regimes, and for those considering FSA authorisation I can also refer them to expert compliance advice.

My aim is to meet and exceed clients’ expectations at competitive rates.  I look forward to working with you.
