Having been a journalist early in my career reflects the fact that I’m naturally quite curious; my role in origination is therefore a natural fit.

At Sovereign I specialise in Education & Training, International Financial Administration and Aviation Services; having a detailed understanding of these market and the businesses that operate within them is fundamental to how we approach our areas of sector focus.

A key part of my role is meeting business owners, finding out about their plans and aspirations and in turn seeing how we may be able to help them achieve this. 

Prior to joining Sovereign, I was Head of Corporate Finance Research at European investment bank Altium Capital, where I worked with entrepreneurs, corporates and private equity firms on acquisition, fundraising and deal origination assignments across a range of sectors and geographies.  

A key part of my role is meeting business owners, finding out about their plans and aspirations and in turn seeing how we may be able to help them achieve this.

I also worked in the corporate finance divisions at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein and BDO Stoy Hayward, and in my journalistic days covered Latin American economics and politics while based in Buenos Aires.
