James Thrippleton


Director - Switzerland



James has worked across multiple disciplines within the finance industry for 15 years.

Starting as a Junior Sales assistant in independent financial advice, he very quickly moved up the ranks to become a manager. After working within this role for a number of years, he developed a keen interest in financial markets and decided to explore this field further. Moving to a reputable hedge fund he worked directly for the manager and head analyst.

James then moved to an international Oil trading company as a broker. Despite enjoying these roles, James realised he preferred working with people as opposed to computers, and so, 4 years ago, he set up his own Swiss based advisory firm – LAKE Finance International, based in Nyon.

After discussions with Blacktower, the two companies have joined forces to further progress the swiss market. James will be operating as the country’s manager.
