David joined AES in December 2008 following five years in UK financial services, having grown a start-up firm to a leading independent multi-disciplinary practice.
He joined AES as Head of Business Management, whose primary aim was to help private client advisers grow a thriving advisory business with the organisation. Combining his operational experience with a passion for improving client outcomes, David moved to Head of Investment Services with one simple mission: to improve the quality of investment solutions available to clients in the international marketplace. His efforts have contributed to a huge amount of growth and 'positive change' in many parts of AES and the underlying advisory business, and so in August 2016 David was promoted to Chief Investment Officer.
David remains one of company's frontrunners in creating sophisticated but safe investment solutions, and hates any financial practice which could be considered white collar crime, something all too often seen in the region.
David is committed to continuing his professional development and has recently passed the CFA level 1 exam.
Outside of work, David enjoys archaeology, history and a wide range of sports including hockey, cycling, running and swimming.
