#9 - Japan Investment Banking and Venture Capital CEO (Graham Elliot)

In this week’s podcast, Graham Elliot tells his story of growing up in the large port town of Hartlepool, starting his financial career in the city of London at a brokerage firm, moving to a hedge fund and then making his way to Japan where he became CEO of two investment banks before returning to the UK again.

Graham now runs his own Venture Capital Fund Raising Platform called GEAS and resides in Gurnsey.

The straight talking adventurer is a natural storyteller and has seen it all including some very “Wolf of Wall Street” type behavior back in his day. Graham has carved out what Simon and I can only describe as the perfect lifestyle.
