Head of Wealth Management Sales
020 3011 0009
Andrew joined Symvan in 2018 bringing twenty five years’ City experience in equity research, institutional equity sales and client relationship management. Technology has featured strongly throughout his career which took him first into the Japanese market as an analyst with Cazenove and several other investment houses and then later into Taiwan. He was a Japan resident for ten years. In Tokyo he set up and managed several research desks and was particularly interested in under researched smaller companies. In London, he co-founded an Asian equities business for Man Securities. More recently, at SinoPac Securities, a Taiwanese broker, he was responsible for initiating, managing and developing relationships with hedge funds, pensions funds, family offices and sovereign wealth funds, being mostly large technology investors. Andrew believes that this is one of the best times to be involved in VC and early stage investing and joining Symvan with its focus on disruptive and transformative segments of technology such as AI, is especially exciting. He notes that in recent years, the UK has established itself as the most important centre for technology start-ups in Europe and that its position looks certain to strengthen. Andrew earned his MBA from Alliance Manchester Business School and holds the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI) Diploma. He graduated in English Literature from St. Edmund Hall, Oxford.
