Originally from the United Kingdom, Miles is a passionate advocate for the fight against poverty as well as a strong believer in equal opportunity. Having previously participated in poverty, education and conservation projects in Madagascar, West Africa and Indonesia, Miles was drawn to The Greater Contribution’s mission to provide a pathway for women to work their way out of poverty.
A seasoned finance professional, Miles has over 15 years experience working for investment banks and asset management firms in New York, London and São Paulo. Previously with Credit Suisse, JP Morgan and Franklin Templeton Investments, Miles currently works as a portfolio manager for a large US wealth manager. He will leverage this experience to ensure robust financial governance is a paramount priority at The Greater Contribution.
In addition to his career in finance, Miles is also pursuing graduate studies in Development Economics & Policy — learning the best practices for implementing, monitoring and evaluating poverty alleviation initiatives from case-studies conducted all over the world. He is keen to apply these learnings to our mission and ensure we maximize the opportunities we provide to women in Uganda.
