Managing Director

Clive Corcoran has been engaged in the finance and asset management sectors, on both sides of the Atlantic, for more than 25 years. After completing his education in the UK, Canada and the US, he co-founded and became the CEO of an asset management company based in the USA during the 1980s and 90s. The company provided wealth management and fiduciary services to a variety of international clients. His own responsibilities included personalised business management, international tax planning and providing strategic financial advice to high net worth individuals. Since re-locating to the UK in 2000, he has continued, as an FCA registered investment adviser, to be engaged in providing strategic investment advice to private clients and pension funds.

During recent years he has written several books on international finance, focusing on asset allocation and risk management. He also has also been very actively involved in executive education on a global basis for finance professionals. He conducts workshops and custom courses on a variety of topics including asset allocation techniques, risk management, central banking, systemic risk, credit risk, market risk and derivatives. As part of his focus on providing training on capital markets he has considerable experience with exchange traded funds (ETFs) and other structured products.

Some of the clients for whom he has provided in house training include the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, a central bank in the Eurozone, the European Commission, three of Europe’s G-SIB banks, the largest bank in Russia, one of China’s G-SIB banks, two central banks in Africa, a sovereign wealth fund in the Gulf, one of the best known global asset management companies in Singapore, China’s largest asset management company in Beijing, a central bank in South America, a public/private partnership in project finance based in Washington D.C., a major European clearing organisation, the European Investment Bank (EIB), Goldman Sachs Asset Management and Oxford University Endowment Management.

As an author he has written several titles on finance and investment management. His most recent book entitled Systemic Liquidity Risk and Bipolar Markets was published by Wiley Finance in February 2013, and looks at new challenges facing asset allocators and risk managers in the post financial crisis environment. An earlier book entitled Long/Short Market Dynamics: Trading Strategies for Today’s Markets (Wiley, 2007) dealt primarily with alternative asset management strategies.
