I started my career in 1979, as a lawyer in the City of London with Slaughter and May, specializing in commercial and financial work.

In 1984 I moved to what is now UBS and spent some years as an analyst and stockbroker with postings in London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore and Zurich.

In 1992 I branched out on my own and since that date I have been engaged in consultancy in international finance as well as managing my own portfolio.
