“I’m completely self-taught and love the challenge. It’s led to amazing opportunities — including working for magazines and at London Fashion Week.”


“Lansdowne Developed Markets are the second European-based firm to enter the top 20; they have made $11.8 billion of gains for investors after fees since launch in 2001.”

”Hedge fund returns were muted overall in 2014, and net gains for investors at $71 billion were lower than in the two previous years.”

“The hedge fund industry is going to be the subject of some really rash and nasty and intense regulation.”

“The institutionalization of the business has brought about a sea change in terms of transparency.”

“The increasing capabilities of technology-based investment systems is in evidence.”

“The returns from hedge funds in 2015 overall was unsatisfactory, because they lost money for investors.”
