In the field of finance, there are names that really stand out among the rest. Harry Harrison is one of these names that has risen to the top in the world of finance. Starting as a lead student, Harrison earned a Masters of Philosophy in Finance during his time at the University of Cambridge and a BS in Economics from the University of Warwick. His degree in philosophy of finance has allowed him to have a unique look at the markets and how they work. His 20 years at Barclays offered him a great deal of insight into what it was like to manage large amounts of money for big corporate clients.
During his 28 years in the financial industry, Harrison has developed a deep interest in how companies actually work. Ever since his time in college, he didn’t really see a place for himself professionally outside of finance. While he spent most of his time at Barclays trading derivatives, Harrison eventually wanted to have a more hands-on approach to his investing on a more personal level with the businesses with which he was working. Instead of being in charge of $110 billion worth of assets to trade at Barclays, Harrison knew it was time for him to strike out on his own and do something new.
Now that Harrison has his own business, he has been able to take a much more relaxed approach to his career. No longer is he burdened by the expectations of a large bank and their board of directors. Harrison has now adopted a much healthier work-life balance. With a very proactive mindset and action taking ability, Harrison is able to incorporate new technology into his business to take things to a whole new level. It will be very exciting to see what the next few years hold for Harrison and his business.
