My current focus is assisting asset managers to navigate burgeoning ESG regulation and supporting start-up investment funds as Chair of IQ-EQ Regulation and Compliance business. I have extensive leadership experience in the funds sector as a Board Director, Consultant, Compliance Director and Regulator. Prior to joining IQ-EQ, I was a Managing Director at Duff and Phelps and, prior to that, at Kinetic Partners LLP, Executive Board member and Global Head of Compliance Consulting responsible for leading the practice in the US, UK, Hong Kong and Singapore, providing compliance support to numerous start-up and established alternative investment managers including hedge; private equity; VC and real estate funds. I was previously responsible for putting in place the FSA risk-based regime for supervising hedge funds and private equity managers as the author of FSA Discussion Paper 05/4, "Hedge funds: A discussion of risk and regulatory engagement," June 2005. I was an Executive Director at Goldman Sachs Asset Management before joining the FSA. I have spoken frequently at industry events and been interviewed in trade and mainstream media, including interviews on BBC Newsnight and Today Programme, Bloomberg CNBC and Financial Times. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Oxford, England.
