Speaker Bio

Justin Urquhart-Stewart

Justin has a keen interest in developing the investment market to break down as many of the traditional barriers as possible for both private investors and smaller companies.

During his working life, Justin has worked on vineyards around Europe and also worked on Southampton Docks where he was even elected as a Trades Union shop steward. From studying law at Southampton University he trained as a barrister however, recognising his astonishing lack of talent went into international corporate and trade finance in Uganda and in South East Asia where he lived in Singapore. Returning to the UK he was involved in the development of Big Bang in 1986 with BZW. From this he, with others, went on to found Broker Services which eventually went to become Barclays Stockbrokers where he was Corporate Development Director.

He and his business partner of many years founded Seven Investment Management (7IM) in 2001 to provide some “radical common sense” to change “a lazy, lethargic and self-satisfied” investment industry which they saw as being primarily run for the benefit of itself rather its clients.
