I spent my early career as a corporate banker working with large energy companies and as an investment banker in the U.S., Latin America and Asia, originating structured debt for U.S., international and emerging market issuers. This experience gave me particular insight into fixed income and international markets. In working with clients, it is essential to understand their goals, objectives and expectations in order to craft a unique strategy. It is equally important for clients to gain a deep understanding of their investment strategy and why we chose it. Regular, collaborative communications enable me to accomplish these vital objectives.
