With failed football dreams behind him, John applies the same level of enthusiasm to investing and how to improve outcomes by battling behavioural biases. He leads on oil research, but also gets involved in a wide range of macro topics. That love of variety also explains his craft beer fascination.

His analytical thinking benefits from being an Actuary with an economics degree and having previously worked as a strategist at RBS.
