His main area of focus is the Investments and Products Office, where he looks after the Alternative Investments, Research, Investment Management and Commercial Management teams from a Compliance angle. He has been involved in a wide variety of product launches in the alternative investments space (open- and closed-ended hedge funds, funds of hedge funds, private equity funds, property funds and structured notes wrapped around these investments), including the definition of proper product governance related to the investment process, sales process and marketing restrictions around these investments, whether for advised sales, or allocation to discretionary or advisory investment managed portfolios. He remains actively involved in the ongoing dialogue with the Financial Services Authority (FSA), the European Commission, European Parliament and the Committee of European Securities Regulators (CESR) on facilitating a regulatory framework that is conducive to the development of retail-oriented alternative product.
 Prior to joining Barclays Wealth, he was Head of Research of the European Capital Markets Institute, specialising in the analysis of the impact of financial regulation on business models and market structures.
