I am a Chartered Accountant who graduated from Durham University and began my career with Coopers & Lybrand (now PwC) in the Banking and Capital Markets division. I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Accountants of England and Wales and a Member of the UK’s Chartered Institute of Securities and Investment. Before founding HD Capital, I was instrumental in growing the corporate finance business of stockbrokers WH Ireland Limited in London, where I acted as the lead corporate finance adviser on a number of flotations as well as executing numerous fund raisings and providing advice on takeovers and other transactions in the private and public arenas.

Earlier in my career, I was seconded to the listing department of the London Stock Exchange and I also worked at Sigma Capital plc, a venture capital investment firm, where I advised on investment into emerging growth companies. Presently, I am an independent non-executive director of two listed companies and a director of a number of private companies focused on growth stage investments. / T: +44 (0)20 3551 4872 / M: + 44 (0)7901 978447 / Skype: paul.j.dudley
