In his time at UBS, Anthony’s portfolio was ranked in the top 25 out of 1000 globally. In 2012, he joined Tantallon Capital as an Investment Analyst providing idea generation in the Asia Pacific markets.

Commenting on today’s announcement, Institute Managing Partner Anton Kreil made the following statement: “Anthony has had an amazing career and is renowned in the Hedge Fund industry as one of the best trade idea generators globally of the last 20 years. We are a perfect fit for each other, mainly due to our global community of over 400 Retail Traders who often struggle with process and idea generation in the beginning of their development as traders. He will be a great Mentor for the students to learn from and he will be adding a lot of value to our organisation.”
