Chris O’Malley: The dark arts of the syndicate

Chris O’Malley started out at stockbroker Phillips & Drew in 1974 at a time when the debt side of the firm was dominant. In part, this was down to the winning of a big contract for the Mars pension fund, which insisted on a first-class gilts operation.

O’Malley started in short gilts, before moving into local authority bonds. But by 1977 he would be on the move.
