The foundation of my work has been writing about esoteric financial issues such as global custody, settlement, fund administration, fund management and investment strategies. I have worked for several publications but mainly: Financial Times Mandate (1998-2009), Pensions Week and Financial News. I also worked on a part-time basis for Citywire (2003-2004) a daily online financial newswire. I also produced much of the banking material for the British version of the now defunct Encarta Encyclopaedia.

Other editorial contributions have included old specialities such as acting as deputy editor on African Business (1999), travelling to Botswana to build editorial for Investors’ Guide to Botswana (2003/04) and Discover Botswana.
