Julian Pittam


Jules started his career at Bankers Trust in sales and trading. He spent three years in Hong Kong and Singapore with the same firm before returning to London to work for Lehman Brothers in 1999. He left Lehman in 2005 to become a partner and the Managing Director of Data Explorers, a small data, research and analytical firm. The business grew exponentially and after six years was sold to Markit.

Having taken a bit of time off, Jules became Head of EMEA for ENSO Financial which was then sold to ICAP in April 2016, at which point he left.

Jules has since become a Non-Executive Director of a number of companies and is an early stage investor in companies that can demonstrate a great idea but lack finance or business experience.
