I have known Kris for over 7 years and have worked with him on a large number of transactions. Kris has a vast amount of experience in structured finance and has an extensive knowledge of the market, products and people in the industry.

He is responsive and organised in his approach to deals and is passionate about his work. This is best shown in the way that he really drives a deal forward. When Kris says he will do something, you absolutely know that this will be done. Kris can be a tough negotiator (and I have been on the receiving end of this once or twice) but he is fair, loyal and respectful. He is determined and never one to shy away from a challenge. He is someone I would want in my corner.

He has significant experience in all aspects of treasury, particularly in relation to wholesale funding and is naturally intuitive in relation to bond pricing and “reading a market”.

Managing DirectorUK Clearing Bank

I’ve known Kris for many years, most recently in the purchase of a substantial asset sale and its subsequent securitisation. Kris’s input and engagement throughout in what was an inaugural transaction for both us and Coventry was invaluable in closing the trade and instrumental in establishing a landmark for the sector.
