Over the course of a single day, I could find myself meeting with a rating agency, pricing a new bond or private placement, and restructuring a swap portfolio. This scope allows me to work on many different aspects of a problem for our clients, delivering a holistic, outcome-focused solution, whether that means reducing interest costs over six months, or funding development of new homes over six years.
I joined the JCRA team in 2016 from Canaccord Genuity, where I sat within the UK Fixed Income team.
