After graduating from University College London, with a degree in economics, I joined Chelsea and, having worked my way around various departments, I became head of research in 2001 and, subsequently, research director in 2013. Over the years, we have introduced the Core Selection, Selection, EasyISAs, Fund Review and, more recently, our VT Chelsea Managed Funds. I also provide commentary to the trade and national press on investment funds. As a director, I'm also partly responsible, not only for the day-to-day running of the company, but for its expansion and direction. When I'm not at my desk, I can often be found standing on my head in a yoga class.
