After graduating with first-class honors from the University of Liverpool, Chris took his degree in aerospace engineering to the Royal Air Force, where he spent nearly a decade finding logical solutions to complex problems in high-pressure circumstances around the globe. At BlackRock, Chris found a similarly rare and rewarding global environment with demanding and fulfilling challenges.
Chris and his team work alongside the Global Capital Markets Team, which means lots of collaboration with offices around the globe, from Hong Kong to San Francisco. Running the primary platform—which allows clients access to create and redeem shares—Chris has worked on exciting projects, enabling 24-7-365 access.
“There’s such a huge amount of innovation at BlackRock—we’re constantly trying to build and develop our business, creating so many projects and opportunities for us to get involved with.”
“iShares offer our clients exposure to a broad range of markets and asset classes through only a single share—they offer liquidity, price discovery, and transparency, where other underlying markets are often closed.”
