Charles NelsonDirector, Head of UK
Charles has over 30 years’ experience in financial services and technology, primarily in equity sales with the majority of his career at Macquarie Group in London. He started in resources and energy equity sales at Smith New Court (now BofA in the UK), and then moved to Australian equity sales at Macquarie Group. At Macquarie Charles ran the top-rated Australian equities franchise in Europe, and also co-managed the London-based Pan Asian sales desks (including South Africa). After numerous acquisitions at Macquarie, Charles managed European equities sales with global responsibility as well as corporate access and deal syndication. Post Macquarie, Charles joined Bell Potter Securities, the leading independent Australian equities broker, where he managed the London sales team distributing research and helping raise equity for growth companies to institutional investors. Charles joined Meetyl, the leading independent corporate access and governance Fintech engagement company owned by Glass Lewis in March 2015 to manage and grow the franchise in EMEA and APAC, with responsibility for investor on-boarding. The corporate governance engagement tool at Meetyl gave Charles a good insight from both an investor and issuer perspective and made a natural move to Morrow Sodali to drive the UK business. Charles has an MSC in Reservoir Engineering from Imperial College London.
