About Steve.

Steve is passionate about impact investment and technology.

His initial experience in the investment management industry saw him review and build client portfolios utilising socially responsible investments and hedge funds, it is from here there his desire to focus on alternative investments was born. Steve has reviewed hundreds of pitch decks and investment opportunities over his career and is an ardent believer in the importance of due diligence in order to drive a project's success and as the foundation to source investment.



Steve has an enviable network he has established over the many years and geographies he has operated in. His experience in working with impact investors has illustrated first-hand how small to medium size projects need to provide data in a more concise and holistic way in order to source investment. He believes it is these projects that, in aggregate, can be catalytic for sustainable transition. Steve uses his background in fund analysis, relationship management and education to engage with key stakeholders to help drive the success of Diligised.


Steve holds the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) designation in addition to the Chartered Due Diligence Analyst (CDDA) designation. He has a Bachelor of Business in Financial Planning from RMIT in Melbourne, Australia, a Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Development from SOAS in London, UK, a Certificate in Blockchain Strategy from Said Business School at the University of Oxford and a Certificate in Responsible Investment from RIAA, Australia.



Steve's career has spanned investment strategy and portfolio construction through to business development and investment education for over 25 years across Australia, United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates where he now resides with his family. More recently, Steve has been working directly in blockchain technology use cases focusing on social impact, sustainability and climate change.
