Andrew is a Partner at Hambro Perks and was one of its first employees. Andrew primarily focuses on capital raising and strategic relationships, working with some of the firm’s largest investors and shareholders. 

Prior to joining Hambro Perks, Andrew was a Managing Director at Goldman Sachs within the Fixed Income Currencies and Commodities Division, where he built and ran one of the most successful pan-European businesses. Andrew was responsible for a broad range of global clients including institutional money managers, international banks and corporates, working with them to implement strategic initiatives across Europe and globally. 

Andrew joined Goldman Sachs on its graduate training programme, having graduated from Nottingham University..

In business as in life, integrity is everything. It really does make all the difference when you know you can trust the people around you and that they’re motivated by the right things. 

I’m a big believer in gut instinct – it’s rarely if ever let me down.

At Hambro Perks, we’ve built a multi-stage, multi-sector investment firm. The breadth of the opportunity and the skillset we can deploy is formidable. I find that really exciting.

There’s nothing better than seeing a story emerge of an outstanding founding team creating unstoppable growth at a relatively early stage. But often you have to wait a little longer. That’s in the nature of things. A truly great business will always succeed in its own way, and in its own time.

We’ve all come to understand the importance of mental wellbeing, especially, through the pandemic. I see big potential for innovation and disruption in insurance and healthcare. I’m proud that Hambro Perks is already backing the change-makers in that market.

Don’t work too hard – or too late, anyway. One day early on in my career I stayed in the office after hours and ended up losing out on an investment opportunity that still makes me wince. If only I hadn’t been so keen to impress my boss.

You learn a lot about people when they’re under pressure. Being able to come through adversity with your values intact is a real mark of character.
