What question or industry issue are you looking forward to hearing about at the World Energy Capital Assembly (WECA)?
A continued focus on capital discipline and the delivery of improved returns on capital.
You’ll be sitting on the Fund Managers panel at WECA. Are you bullish, bearish or uncertain about the outlook for oil and gas going into 2019?
Pretty neutral on oil prices. I would expect the forward curve to flatten with front month oil prices slightly weaker and long dated oil prices stronger.
Since joining Guinness Asset Management Limited in 2013, what has been the greatest challenge you have faced?
Dealing with weak energy equities after the November 2014 OPEC meeting that brought oil prices down sharply.
What are your ambitions for 2019?
To deliver the best performing long only energy fund available for European investors and to help improve the exposure and overall asset base of Guinness Asset Management.
What are three things left on your bucket list?
I have loads left on my bucket list, including visiting Antarctica, seeing gorillas in the jungle and polar bears in the arctic
