David supervises the portfolio management process across the partnership and sits on the Investment Committee for all YFM funds. He has limited direct investment responsibilities which allows him to work across the portfolio and act as a sounding board for the rest of the team.


David spent 10 years as a Portfolio Director at international Private Equity house, 3i where he oversaw the realisation of over £100m in cash proceeds from investments. Before moving into private equity, David worked as a management consultant in Europe and North America specialising in supply chain optimisation.


David owns a small vineyard which occupies most of his free time. Otherwise his time is spent providing a complementary taxi service to his young family.
