About me

Gender Male
Occupation capital stewardship
Location London, United Kingdom
Introduction I've been working at the intersection of labour (unions and other worker orgs) and capital (institutional investors) for over 20 years. I'm interested in developing a stronger voice for and recognition of labour in the capital markets, responsible investment and corporate governance. This blog represents my personal views only.
