The financial markets can be murky, mysterious and difficult to navigate. Mike is passionate about taking what may seem complicated and making it easily digestible. He is focused on finding simple solutions to complex situations that work for his clients.

Mike’s background encompasses financial markets trading, sales, risk, and economics. He specialises in crafting FX and interest rate derivatives into appropriate hedging strategies to effectively manage risk. He  is also known for his unique analysis and insight of economic events and trends.

A proud Dad of two, outside of work Mike is a fan of good books, red wine, black coffee and comic book movies. Marathoning is also a favoured pastime - when he can squeeze in the training.
