My life before Fisch Asset Management
Having completed my degree in Land Economy (Economics & Law) at Cambridge University, I joined UBS in London in 1995. I worked until 2001 as an originator of convertible bonds within the Equity Capital Markets Group. I then moved onto the Equities trading floor as Head of Convertible Bond Research and then from 2003 as Head of Convertible Bond Marketing, with a particular focus on developing and marketing the UBS Convertible Indices. In 2012 my duties expanded when I was appointed Global Head of the newly-formed UBS Index Group with responsibility for managing all indices owned by UBS. In 2014 I became Global Chief Operating Officer for the Cash Equities business as my final role at UBS before joining Fisch in October 2015.
My duties at Fisch Asset Management
Above all, my hope is to be able to apply 20 years of experience in the convertible bond asset class for the benefit of Fisch’s current and future clients. As Product Manager – Convertible Bonds, I am a member of the portfolio management team, working closely with the sales and marketing teams to support our clients and also the growth of the assets managed by Fisch from international investors.
When I'm not working, then ...
I spend much of my free time watching my two children competing in a variety of sports (including netball, swimming, triathlon, rugby, football and cheerleading!). I am a keen runner and skier, and have been closely involved in the sport rowing for many years, previously as a cox but more recently as an umpire. My wife and I enjoy meals out together and watching live comedy and music.
What significance do "fish" have in my life?
‘Fish’ have taught me how positive change is possible if you are willing to try new things and learn. As a child I would never have imagined that fish would become one of my favourite foods – I just needed to be willing to try! I am now using this willingness to explore and develop as I improve my German together with the help of my colleagues at Fisch.
