Meet Our Management Team
Barnaby has nearly 20 years’ experience in banking and financial services, both in Australia and the UK. This has included large banks such as National Australia Bank, Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse, and smaller boutiques including BlueBay Asset Management and European Credit Management, with roles largely involved in the management and trading of Syndicated Loans. A common theme has been inheriting underperforming teams, then overhauling and revitalizing them. More recently Barnaby was responsible for establishing and heading up the Australian office of another specialist independent loan agency provider, the first of its kind to venture into the local market, as well as sitting on its global board of directors.
Barnaby sees the benefit to establishing an alternate provider for the burgeoning Australian and New Zealand loan market, with improved systems and risk mitigation strategies, using the knowledge and experience gained from both large and small institutions to create a market-leading offering. Barnaby is a fully qualified CPA.
