Having studied Economics at Sussex and London Universities, Mark is now Head of Economics for HSBC’s commercial banking business in the UK.
He is responsible for advising the Bank in the UK and its business customers on developments in the British and global economies. Within this remit he has taken a keen interest in monitoring developments in the Euro Area, and also China. But more recently, his work has focused on explaining the mechanics and economic consequences of the UK’s decision to leave the EU.
He undertakes an intensive programme of public speaking at conferences and seminars organised or sponsored by HSBC. In order to ensure that HSBC’s commercial customers in the UK are as well informed as possible about the issues arising from ‘Brexit’, he spoke at more than 150 such events during 2016.
