In 1994 he moved into the private client arena, as part of the Investment Unit of Lloyds Private Banking & over a two year period diversified away from an exclusive analytical/Fund Management role to incorporate an extensive presentational package on the bank’s investment strategy delivered ‘on the road’ to its network of offices around the country.

In 1996 Paul joined Butterfield Bank to head up the global Equity research effort in London in support of the Bank’s (offshore) private client base. By this time that he had also developed training material covering most aspects of Portfolio Management & the behaviour of institutional investors for delivery (as a freelance consultant) to a wide range of audiences in the UK & abroad. This was subsequently extended to incorporate the private client asset management area. 

Paul had a spell with an international high-risk security company analysing the operations of quoted oil & mining corporates worldwide. In 2000 Paul moved into full time training with main course providers, specialising in Fund Management, Equity Markets, Private Banking & Hedge Funds.
