Jeremy is one of the leading voices on foreign exchange in the UK. At the tender age of 26 he won recognition in the Square Mile magazine's '30 most influential under 30' list, as winner of the award for the most influential voice on finance in the City.
As a regular commentator on the BBC, ITV and across the national media in the last 18 months, Jeremy cuts a calm and informative figure on camera and presents thoughtful and concise analysis in print.
Jeremy has an innate ability to communicate sometimes complicated economic analysis into an everyday language which people can understand. This has made him a popular choice for broadcasters looking for economic commentary on a range of subjects, including most recently interest rates, the UK services sector, the UK’s tentative growth and the Fed.
He has a large following on Twitter where he provides up to date economic analysis to a legion of followers who include high profile editors, journalists, economists and business leaders. World First was shortlisted for a ‘Shorty’ award for financial comment earlier this year.
