“The prospect of identifying a great business and then providing the critical insight to support an investment case is what makes my job exciting everyday”
I am part of the direct origination team at Livingbridge. This gives me the opportunity to broaden my knowledge by researching interesting growing companies and industries. It also allows me to work across the Livingbridge new investment team.
Additionally I have worked with existing investments, conducting research to support their strategy and helping to find acquisition opportunities. I thoroughly enjoy working directly with the management teams.
I often conduct research to support the investment team on new deals, including on 2016 investments BoilerJuice and Four Eyes. Whilst researching a business and its market, inevitably I form a view and it is great when that helps the team to build conviction and invest in exciting businesses like Boilerjuice and Four Eyes.
I graduated with a degree in banking, finance and management from Loughborough University in 2015. I spent my third year on placement at Livingbridge and was fortunate enough to be asked to come back!
Outside work I like to keep busy. Learning gymnastics is proving to be a great way to spend a lot of time in a lot of pain for very limited gains. I also enjoy reading, writing and photography.
