Today we are more inter-linked than ever as global citizens. What matters in other continents and economies does impact our daily lives. Old certainties are being challenged and new leadership is rising. It is in this environment I have launched www.financialorbit.com. When I resigned from my job heading up a US$2bn+ range of funds (and managing the majority of these assets) I was fairly sure that this was the correct step for the next stage of my career. Today I am absolutely certain of this. Having a full capability to express yourself as an investor and a macroeconomic thinker/communicator at this time of paradigm shifts and material change for the global economy and financial markets is absolutely key for a forward-looking investment professional.
