I am British and was born in London. I attended Oxford University where I read Human Sciences and then joined Mercury Asset Management as a graduate trainee.
I was a director and portfolio manager at MLIM for 16 years, latterly as part of the global equity team and before that responsible for managing Japanese equity portfolios.
I left MLIM in 2002 and co-founded FM Capital Management, a boutique Japanese equity management firm. I joined Oldfield Partners in 2013
