I joined Sovereign in early 2022 to focus on investment opportunities in Healthcare & Pharma Services, Education & Training and Business & Technology Services - three sectors where Sovereign has a great track-record.

I was drawn to Sovereign by the strength of the specialist research team, and now have the opportunity to work with exciting companies to support and help realise their ambitions. For me, it is Sovereign’s commitment to growth, both organically and through acquisition, that makes it such a compelling place to work.

I have always enjoyed researching a wide range of sectors, and then deep diving into industries and businesses; learning how they’re structured and what makes them tick. I indulged this interest in my previous role at GLG (Gerson Lehrman Group), where I worked closely with several UK hedge funds across their investment process - through idea generation, top-down company analysis and generally supporting their portfolios. Given the emphasis on primary research, I was lucky enough to work closely with industry leading founders and entrepreneurs - something I continue to do at Sovereign.

For me, it is Sovereign’s commitment to growth, both organically and through acquisition, that makes it such a compelling place to work.

Prior to GLG, I was at Softcat Plc in the tech space, working with a variety of clients but with a focus on the financial sector.

I studied Ancient History at university, which is still a great area of interest outside work. I also love any and all endurance sports; I recently competed in my first triathlon - hopefully with more to come!
