I provide advice and insight to companies on communicating their financial strategy to the investment community and the media. In particular, I help companies navigate the impact of regulatory changes in financial markets, such as MiFID ll. I have a strong track record in capital markets having spent over 25 years working in sellside research in large banks, latterly at Nomura where I was a Managing Director, and before that at Lehman Brothers, Credit Suisse and HSBC. I then gained a thorough understanding of financial communications during a year at Bell Pottinger. I have an in-depth knowledge of accounting and financial issues, having originally qualified as a Chartered Accountant. As a sellside analyst, I specialised in consumer companies, which continues to be a focus area.
