After graduating from Cambridge University in 1993, the trainer worked as an auditor with Arthur Andersen, gaining a comprehensive knowledge of corporate accounting and financial statements analysis in mergers and acquisitions. He qualified as a chartered accountant (ACA) and then worked in investment banking in the City of London, initially with HSBC and subsequently at Merrill Lynch. Throughout his time in the City, he was in a front-office role, advising companies on the m&a valuation model, financing, acquisition financial model, foreign exchange and derivatives. This breadth of practical experience together with his passion for sharing and communicating knowledge, naturally then led him towards a career in financial training.
He has worked in financial training for the last ten years and delivered training courses on accounting, merger and acquisition financial modelling, corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions valuation models and capital markets at investment banks, private equity and corporate finance firms throughout the world.
