I have spent most of my career working for international corporate banks in the UK, providing finance for clients of different sizes and in various sectors. I have also worked as a broker, which is an intermediary function helping clients secure finance from banks; and I also have many years of experience running my own companies and requesting finance directly myself.
For most of my career, however, I have worked across three of the UK’s biggest corporate banks and I have personally been involved in providing over £1 billion of capital to clients either myself or as part of a larger deal team.
I have worked in various functions of corporate banks, from the Front Office with responsibility of my own borrowing clients, to the Middle Office conducting credit analysis on clients, and in niche areas in between, such as Structured Finance whereby high risk and ‘highly leveraged’ clients and deals are assessed.
Through my company, ABFinance, I currently mentor business owners and help them secure the finance they need to achieve their goals.
