I have an extensive background in international, multi-currency asset management, and work with expatriates and high net worth clients. I am Regional Manager Abu Dhabi, and Senior Wealth Manager at Guardian Wealth Management.
Originally an engineer, my first master’s degree was in telecommunications engineering. However I soon realised I enjoyed the financial and commercial side of business more, and I took my MBA with Finance specialism at Imperial College London in 1992.
I’ve been involved in several corporate acquisitions, plus two company listings (IPO’s) on European stock exchanges. For a while I was group commercial director for then the UK’s largest independent ISP. I have also been involved in software development and internet businesses including a leading-edge internet security developer.
Several years ago I made the decision to leave the corporate world and focus on working one-to-one with private clients. I’ve never looked back and find it tremendously rewarding - building financial security for my clients, and lifetime friendships.
I am British, 54 years old, and have lived abroad for almost twenty-five years, mostly in SE Asia, but relocated to UAE in 2018.
