Specialist Area

I am a senior manager in Financial Services at Lincoln Recruitment.

My Background

After Graduating in Finance and Economics from Trinity College Dublin, I moved to London to join Merrill Lynch International where I gained valuable knowledge of capital markets and in particular the Prime Brokerage industry. I was subsequently hired by Mayfair based Hedge Fund, Holland Park Capital where I worked as a trader across global markets employing strategies such as sector rotation, pair trading and event driven opportunities . In 2010 I moved to boutique investment bank, Visor Capital to take up the position Head of Trading where I was responsible for the proprietary book and the equity and fixed income teams, hiring and training staff across trading and operations.

Having spent over 10 years working in London, I returned to Dublin, Ireland and joined Lincoln Recruitment Specialists.

I currently specialise in Financial Services. With respect to Asset management, we work with both large multinational asset managers and also niche players who are based in Dublin and London. Within funds, we have built strong relationships with independent administrators who are headquartered in Dublin and also the bulge bracket international banks who have had a strong presence in Ireland for a number of years.
