Investment Team


I joined Sovereign’s investment team in 2017. As an investment manager, I focus on technology and business services, identifying exceptional businesses and entrepreneurs, working on deal transactions, and subsequently working with management to help develop and support the delivery of the shared vision for the business.

My background is consulting, having spent three years in the M&A practice and internal corporate development team of technology services giant Accenture. There, I always found commercial due diligence and strategy projects with private equity clients particularly interesting, which prompted my move into private equity.

I was excited about Sovereign’s research-led approach to identifying and partnering with great businesses and management talent. This partnership approach helps us support both the organic and acquisitive growth strategies of the teams we back.

I’ve worked with a number of Sovereign-backed businesses including digital transformation business Zenitech, which I sourced when exploring high-quality software engineering providers, and technology-enabled intellectual property services business, Murgitroyd.

I also represent Sovereign on the Board of software business, Alveo, a provider of financial data management and analytics software to global financial services clients.

I studied at Exeter University and have passed my CFA Level 1. In my spare time, I’m involved with the Prince's Trust as a business mentor, am a passionate Chelsea season ticket holder, and a very average 5-a-side player…
