Managing Director, EMEA and Global Political Research
His 25 years’ experience covering the political economy of Russia and other FSU countries, including time working in Moscow-based investment banks where he was a top-ranked strategist and political analyst in broker surveys, started with a posting in Moscow as a UK diplomat in the early 1990s. In the decade from co-founding Trusted Sources until its merger with Lombard Street Research to form TS Lombard in 2016, he has also been producing broader political analysis on EMEA regional markets and geopolitics. Academic work in Italy during the 1980s underpins his lifelong interest in that country’s political economy. He is a regular commentator on FSU affairs in broadcast media and leading op-ed columns. He graduated from Oxford University, where he was also a Fellow of All Souls College.
