Investor and Philanthropist
Richard Nunneley spent his early career with BZW training as fund manager. However, a career in the Black Watch, part of the British Army, seemed more exciting, especially in 1973. In that very British way he quickly rose to command an infantry Battalion before returning to The City of London. Serving in other places such as the Ministry of Defence, Ireland, Berlin and a key NATO job gave him a lasting interest in military security and political issues.
In the early 1990s he was a director of Mercury Asset Management and in 2002 he became a director of Cazenove Capital Management . Allegedly retiring in 2006 he is the main independent investment director for a major UK family with significant global reach and assets.
Day to day he can be found at Dalton Strategic Partners, a spin off from Mercury. He is also Chairman of EMAC Global which covers Slovenia, the Balkans and Georgia, a retired Trustee of the National Army Museum, Treasurer of Combat Stress in the UK, a military mental health charity as well as a trustee or advisor to a number of other UK military charities or not for profit concerns . In his spare time he is a keen member of The Traveller's Club in London, a battlefield historian and a Trustee of ASTIA, a prestigious US foundation regarded as a major priority by the Obama administration.
