Justin is one of the most recognisable and trusted market commentators on television, radio, and in the press and is often called upon to demystify complicated financial jargon and stories. Originally trained as a lawyer, he has communicated a unique understanding of the market’s roles and benefits for the private investor. Having trained as a barrister, Justin took up international corporate finance, working in both Africa and Singapore then back in the UK. This led Justin to help found Broker Services in 1986, which went on to become Barclays Stockbrokers where he was Corporate Development Director.
He co-founded Seven Investment Management (7IM) in 2001 to provide some “radical common sense” to change “a lazy, lethargic and self-satisfied” investment industry which he saw as being primarily run for the benefit of itself rather its clients.
