James Von Simson

Having worked in politics in Westminster and Investment Banking in London and Frankfurt, I entered the investment management industry in 2011. I become an Investment Director at Tilney in 2016 where I work on the International Clients team advising complex and multi-jurisdictional families on their investments, structuring, strategy and philanthropy. Elected in 2020, I sit on the STEP Worldwide Council representing England and Wales.

Throughout my school (boarding), university (Trinity Collage Dublin) and working life (City) I have all too frequently been working with people who look and sound like me. I strongly believe in the power of mentoring to help others overcome the barriers I never faced.
