As regular readers of the SGM-FX Daily Brief know, I am a music fan and although not a regular concert goer, I like to go to big name concerts whenever I get the opportunity. Having been a fan of Elton John’s since the early 70’s when he was producing arguably some of his finest songs […]
Each morning I hear my alarm clock going off. The unexpected but at the same time expected sound that takes me from the dreamland to the real world to start my daily routine. Getting ready to go to work, making breakfast for the family, helping the kids with their uniforms and lunch boxes and a […]
When I first told my colleagues that I am travelling to Panama, they all seemed a bit shocked. Why would a Compliance Officer want to visit a country famous for its historic compliance issues? Back then, I didn’t have a precise answer, but a ‘why not?’. Well, now I have a few more words to […]
Following the interesting and certainly diverse blogs on here from my colleagues, I knew I had to go big with my one. So, I decided to enter and compete in one of the biggest fitness races ever held with over 7,500 athletes attending across 2 days. And it was right here in London. You probably […]
In my opinion there is nothing better than spending quality time with your friends in the busy world we live in today. What could be better than spending time with your pals and doing so enjoying our favourite food followed by a (very) competitive round of bowling? My partner and our two best friends have […]

Any regular readers of the weekly SGM blog will have become familiar with these posts being quite witty and charismatic, however this week is about disappointment and heartbreak… Welcome to life as an Arsenal fan. As a lover of all sports, but mainly football and especially Arsenal, football has caused me heartbreak. From Arsenal losing […]
I have forever flicked between interests. Growing up I was a devout football player, before putting my then 5’7″ frame to good use playing basketball, and then American football, and then a plethora of other sports I would dip in and out of. I have read and authored, cooked and danced (often simultaneously). Now though, […]
Avid readers of our SGM-FX company news page will notice a theme of my colleagues taking dramatic and life changing decisions. Getting married, having a child, and supporting Tottenham to name a few. There must be something in the water around these parts because after only 6 months of employment at SGM I too have […]
As sport has been the theme for two of our last three blogs, it may be best to discuss another love of mine. In April 2021, I was fortunate enough to propose to my now fiancée and she was brave/foolish enough to say yes! Since then, we have been through a journey of venue viewings, […]
I have recently embarked on a life changing journey, becoming a father for the first time. Initially excited when hearing the news but also slightly apprehensive for what was about to happen, I started to plan for my new adventure into the unknown. As the months rapidly progressed and the due date crept ever closer, the […]
Wednesday night the Mansion House bore witness to the first of two major dinners held by the Worshipful Company of International Bankers (WCIB). A luxurious room was packed full of WCIB members and their guests with nine long tables protruding from one at the top, and at table eight sat our own Humphrey, Mireille, Jamie, […]
I have long been a lover of watching live sport and was fortunate enough to get tickets for London 2012 Olympics (boxing) and Paralympics (swimming & athletics). I’ve also been to various other Athletics events and watched the Formula One British Grand Prix. My greatest sporting passion though is to watch Rugby Union and Football. I’ve completed a […]
