After working in financial services for many years - including periods in protection insurance at Scottish Widows, financial risk oversight at TSB, strategy and corporate finance at Royal London and retail banking at RBS - I joined Mattioli Woods in August 2022
I take a strong interest in ethical investing and completed the Chartered Banking Institute’s qualification in Green Finance. When not advising clients, I am a board member of a co-operative society that is developing a member-owned, eight turbine wind farm in Scotland. I was previously chairman of the UK’s first consumer owned wind farm, which won Inspiring Coop of the Year 2021.
During the pandemic, I took up running (slowly) and have now memorised routes along the Union Canal, across the Meadows and round Arthur’s Seat (though never all in the same run). This partially mitigates the fact that I like wine and cooking.
