Over 15+ years I’ve helped eight of the top twelve global investment banks define and deliver critical business and operational strategy changes. From a grounding in large-scale financial services IT reengineering at Accenture I went to Barclays in capital markets IT strategy and OTC platform implementation and then became an equity partner at m.a.partners. Since the successful trade sale of m.a.partners to BEA systems, I've focused on independent consulting helping banks and market utilities respond to the requirements and incentives on securities and derivatives resulting from Dodd-Frank and Basel III reforms. A particular theme has been the new commercial economics of securities and derivatives trading resulting from funding and capital impacts of Basel III capital and liquidity measures in combination with mandated OTC clearing, SEF trading and bilateral margin.

I hold an MA (Hons.) in Mathematics from Cambridge University including undergraduate degree and Part III.
