He has 21 years experience working in the world’s leading investment banks and in financial markets. Craig was a Government Bond & FX trader for JPMorgan (’94-99) in Sydney, then took JPMorgan’s London-based Global Technical Analysis group (’99-’03) to consistently one of the top 3 forecasters (Euromoney & Institutional Investor Surveys) of FX, Bond, Commodity & Equity markets around the world between ’00-’03. Upon returning to Australia, he took up a position as the Senior Currency Strategist at ANZ (’03-’06).

He then left ANZ to found Antipodean Capital Management, which specialises in providing asset allocation, research and financial markets advisory services to the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds, pension funds, family offices, banks, corporates and private corporations. Craig lives in the country outside Melbourne, where he brings up his 4 children, and generally runs around (like most people) with little time to spare between work, household and family obligations.
