Dawid Konotey-Ahulu


I grew up in Accra, Ghana, the son of a black Ghanaian doctor and a white English nurse. Until I was 16, (1979) I was, to all intents and purposes, completely Ghanaian.

In 1979, in the middle of the revolution, our family moved to the UK where I went to school in Watford, Herts. I studied law at university and then went to Bar School and qualified as a barrister of Lincoln’s Inn in 1987. I switched to a career in investment banking in 1990, where I helped corporates and financial institutions to manage risk using derivatives and other capital market instruments.

In 2003, I implemented the first full LDI derivatives transaction with a DB pension scheme and in 2006 left investment banking to co-found a new style of investment consulting firm, Redington. I am married with three children and my wife is a lawyer in the City.
