Sean is Founder and Chief Investment Officer at Anthemis. He combines a powerful mix of entrepreneurial, investment and corporate experience and is widely recognized as a leading independent thinker on the future of financial services, informed by his many years as a senior executive in capital markets and investment banking.

He is the author of The Park Paradigm and, serving as a non-executive director on the board of a number of high growth companies, Sean has a proven track record of successfully investing in and advising innovative and disruptive startups.

A founding investor in innovative companies such as Betfair, The Climate Corporation (formerly WeatherBill), Markit and an early investor in Zoopla, before founding Anthemis Group, Sean was part of the Global Markets Management Committee at Dresdner Kleinwort where he ran a number of businesses including their groundbreaking digital markets initiative. He was instrumental in driving the introduction and adoption of electronic book building in the European fixed income markets in early 2000s and authored the seminal “AmazonBay” video exploring the future of finance in 2005.

Originally from Calgary, Alberta, Sean has a bachelor’s in materials science from Rice University in Houston, Texas. He is now based in Geneva and refuses to give up on his dream of one day skiing in the Olympics.
