About Richard

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 from Canaccord Genuity, where I sat within the UK Fixed Income team. In my time there the team was focused on helping UK borrowers access new funding from the retail, wholesale and private placement markets as well as delivering associated treasury advice to help support business planning and borrowing decisions.  Outside the office, I can usually be found exploring the countryside around London on a bicycle or catching up on the weekend’s rugby.

When it comes to monetary policy – go with your gut

We live in a world where three of the major central banks are embarking on broadly similar courses of tightening. The US Fed has led the pack, the Bank of England has followed suit and while the European Central Bank is a little further behind, it promises to catch up soon.

Has central bank openness gone too far?

Central bank chiefs used to be the poster children for policy. Governors were often seen as the face of financial orthodoxy, their words and speeches taken as the official line of their respective institutions.
