I am white British, married with two children. I was lucky enough to attend a boys boarding school on a full academic scholarship and afterwards read Business Administration at the University of Bath.
I joined the Schroder's graduate training programme immediately after university, and spent three years as an investment analyst. In 1991, I joined Newton and then Flemings in 1996 (which ultimately became JP Morgan), where I had a series of investment leadership roles.
After eight years I decided to move to become Global CIO of Deutsche Bank's various asset management businesses.
I left after just two years to reassess my priorities and ultimately set about growing a tiny asset management business in 2006. The business became RWC Partners, and two years after selling a significant minority stake to Schroders I agreed to rejoin the firm in 2013 to run their equities business.
I became Group CEO of Schroders plc in April of this year.
