His career took root in the financial sector following work as a secondary school teacher in London and then a financial journalist at the Daily Telegraph.

His time at investment bank NM Rothschild paved the way for an illustrious journey culminating as the chair of fund manager Gartmore.

Adding to his prominent reputation were his directorships at NatWest, Coutts & Co, Lloyds of London, the Bank of New York and Singapore's sovereign wealth fund.
