Ray is a sustainability professional and leads Wallbrook’s effort on climate as well as on sustainable finance. He joined us after a decade at WWF, the global environmental NGO, where he led the UK's sustainable finance team. His focus at WWF was on spatial finance, policy and regulatory work on climate and environment, thematic leadership on areas such as biodiversity and food finance, deforestation risk, as well as broader systemic change in global finance.
Ray was instrumental in the production of Our Planet: Too Big to Fail, a multi award winning film produced by Silverback Films. Ray has also led projects for WWF with global pension funds on climate scenario modelling as well as successful engagement with the finance sector for protection of World Heritage Sites.
Previously, Ray spent eight years in the global markets division of Merrill Lynch in New York specializing in foreign exchange and short interest rates. He led senior relationships with hedge fund and real money clients from around the world and, later, also made markets and held risk positions for the global Bank.
Ray holds a BSc. in Economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and a MSc. in Environment & Development from the London School of Economics. He currently also sits on two non-executive boards. He is a member of Parmenion’s Ethical Oversight Committee as well as WHEB Asset Management’s Advisory Committee.
He speaks some Spanish, French, and Gujarati and when not delving into the exciting field of sustainable finance, can be found laughing somewhere with his two children, walking in nature, or playing a quick game of tennis.
