Michael co-founded the Met Group in 2002 and is a Managing Partner. He has been a central figure in the rise of Met Traders, particularly its market making services and its graduate training programme, and in building relationships with exchanges and institutional clients. His financial career began as a trader on the floor at LIFFE, being one of the largest volume traders on the exchange. When the exchange went screen-based he continued to trade, primarily Euribor clearing through the Kyte Group . Today he trades a wide range of futures products while helping to oversee the group’s facilities provision to other traders. His broader business perspective comes from a commercial life that began in the licensed merchandise industry, where his last act was to sell the company he started and built into a major player.
