Crossborder Capital

Educated at Bristol and London Universities, Michael founded CrossBorder Capital in 1996. He began his career as Research Director at Salomon Bros, where he developed the powerful and highly regarded quantitative liquidity research methodology now used.
He was appointed Head of Research at Baring Securities in 1992 and became top-ranked “Emerging Market Strategist” by institutional investors for the three years prior to setting up CrossBorder Capital.
His association with William at Linchpin – stemming from both professional and personal synergy – goes back to 2005 and together they have helped to provide services to over 30 clients during this period.
Michael has worked in financial markets since 1981 and is a regular international conference speaker. He has consulted for the World Bank, is a qualified US Supervisory Analyst and has a Masters in Economics.
Married with four children and now living in Oxford, one of Michael’s lesser-known claims to fame is that he was the first – and last – economist to appear on the Jimmy Young Show.‚Äč
