My job is to lead the JCRA team across our offices in the UK and North America. My work is extremely different day to day and I remain involved in many advisory engagements for clients across our specialist sector teams. I also have the privilege of spending lots of face to face time with both existing and new relationships; explaining to them the value JCRA’s expertise can bring to their risk management decisions. I am part of the Group Board which means relentlessly driving our growth agenda and of course our regulatory and compliance obligations. I joined JCRA in 2004, initially in the Edinburgh office. I advised many clients on hedging against FX and interest rate risk. In 2010, after being appointed a Director and joining the Group Board, I relocated to London. In 2012 I was part of the management team which completed the VMBO, moving on to execute the second phase of that in 2017; taking in our first tranche of external capital and allowing the founding directors of JCRA to retire. I hold a first class degree in Economics from Strathclyde University and MSc in Investment Analysis and am a member of the CFA institute. My early career in finance focused on the US equity markets where as an equity analyst and subsequently a fund manager I had an exciting 10 years within various Scottish asset managers. Investing in the equity markets through the tech boom and subsequent bust in the late 1990’s was a learning experience never to be forgotten! A career shift to advisory was unplanned, but after just 6 months of working with JCRA’s clients I knew I had definitely made the right choice. I love to be active, and when time allows enjoy running and swimming. I am also a voracious reader and will never be without a book in my bag. My two daughters Eva and Isla keep me busy the rest of the time, and weekends are spent supporting their pursuits with downtime usually being a family meal and a movie.
