In addition, I am one of the world’s most recognised experts on portfolio and index construction. I wrote ‘A Guide to Index Construction’ for Risk Books, described in a review as “a comprehensive academic treatise on the subject”. He is focused on extending the literature within finance to incorporate big data analysis, artificial intelligence and machine learning.

In my professional career, prior to academia, I was a successful investor in emerging and growth markets. The investment performance of the funds I managed was recognised by Morningstar (with their highest five star rating). I have also been on a number of financial industry task forces, committees and policy councils.
