I attempt to use common sense and patience, and the benefit of experience, to steer clients efficiently towards their aims. In the regulated environment in which funds and advisers find themselves, I help clients accomplish their goals through arrangements that take account of historical roadblocks and detours. I hope that clients continue to find my attitude to be even-tempered and genial, my dealings with regulators and counterparties to be non-confrontational but persistent, and my advice to be practical and creative.
