Biography

Richard began working with AMP in June 2012, when AMP started working with Mathieson Capital. Richard founded Mathieson Capital in 2010, in order to invest in renewable energy and related businesses. Mathieson Capital established Mathieson Biomass in 2011 to establish a pipeline of biomass boiler and CHP ESCO opportunities.

In 2002, Richard founded the London listed, Westbury Property Fund (now Stobart Group) and was Chairman of its investment committee from 2002 until August 2007. The fund became a top quartile performing commercial property investment fund with total assets exceeding £250m.

The transactions included the merger of Westbury with the Eddie Stobart Group and the disposal of Westbury’s commercial property portfolio.

In 2003, he launched the Medical Property Investment Fund (now Assura Group) and served as its Chief Executive between 2003 and March 2010. The fund was initially listed on the London Stock Exchange with a market capitalisation of £136m. Today Assura Group is the largest owner of GP surgeries, with gross assets significantly in excess of £1 billion. Prior to this, Richard worked in investment banking at UBS and ING.

He is also a Director of FirstCare Limited and Chairman of Brickendon Consulting Limited.
