My Services

Hi - After working as a government economist I now run my own venture providing specialised analysis on companies in public (equities) and private (VC) markets. My strength is analysis/modelling and resultant strategic advice, skills honed initially in the finance sector both locally (in banking and funds management) and in the US (in trade policy analysis and development finance). As well as running a consultancy servicing government and ASX200 clients, I have run a start-up firm to exit via merger, and my corporate background includes time with Royal Bank of Canada and the World Bank. I'm comfortable working with organisations ranging from start-up to blue-chip. I'm always keen to help clients find value and make the most of market opportunities.
