After completing A Levels in Economics, Finance and ICT, Chris felt that the natural option was a career in the financial services. He began by developing his interpersonal skills at an estate agent head office for two years, and within that role his collaboration skills flourished.

Chris’ decision to join Carnelian Capital matched his passion and drive to pursue a career in finance. He will be working towards financial planning qualifications over the coming years.

In his spare time, he keeps in sync with local football teams and is an avid Chelsea supporter. Being technologically inclined, he also stays up to date with technological advances and hopes that he can incorporate this into his role.
