What I do
I have responsibility for all commercial aspects of Architas’ UK business including distribution, marketing, proposition and business development. I was promoted to my current role in September 2017.
Where I’ve been
Before joining Architas in 2014, I spent seven years as a sales director at Thames River Capital and then F&C after its acquisition. Before that, I worked for Friends Provident International. I was a manager of the funds marketing and research team there, with responsibility for its international offshore fund range.
What I’ve learnt
I hold an Investment Management Certificate and went to Liverpool Hope University, where I got a degree in Fine Art and Psychology. I never thought studying the complexities of human behaviours and workings of the mind would prove to be so useful. One thing I’ve taken to heart is this: to get diversity of thought, you must first establish diversity of background, viewpoints and culture.
