Belinda has enjoyed a successful and wide-ranging career in financial services which has evolved into a more advisory and strategic role, particularly with early-stage companies, and more recently acquiring an expertise in the emerging low-cost hydrogen and energy arena.

Having started her career at Merrill Lynch, Belinda moved to HSBC, initially specialising in advising major institutional clients on listed derivatives and futures strategies and thereafter moving to the UK Equity Sales Desk, straddling both UK Derivatives and UK Equities offering integrated strategies and solutions. She eventually set up and ran the Pan-European Equities Sales Desk focusing on US Fund Managers.

From HSBC she joined Deutsche Bank to offer Pan-European Equity trading ideas predominantly to hedge funds and other institutional investors, building an extensive European client base.

From the major banks, Belinda moved into Private Equity, advising for and on early-stage companies.

In 2021 she became an advisor and then a non-executive director of a Canadian company producing clean, low-cost hydrogen as well as oil, and in July 2023 was appointed to the sub-committee Board of Independent Directors to take over running the business and resulting in the successful sale of the company.

Belinda speaks fluent French and Spanish, and when she is not working, she enjoys current affairs, music, charitable works, exercise and driving fast (but is seeking a new outlet now that London has become a 20 miles per hour zone).
