Kevin Barnett

I sit on the board of two London Asset Management companies and also owned my own brokerage before merging it - and its extensive portfolio – with a major firm in 2006.

I have always written on finance throughout my career, and have made contributions to publications such as Financial Planning, Risk Magazine, The Financial Times and International Business Times.
