After three years working for Jardines in Hong Kong, Nigel spent 31 years in the City of London, 16 years in investment banking, then 15 years as a fund manager running an activist fund. The fund took big stakes in under-performing companies and, working with the other major shareholders to build a consensus for change, engaged with management to implement change giving him a rare understanding of the UK corporate governance eco-system.
