Larry is a highly regarded political policy risk consultant to hedge funds, family offices, asset managers, and high net worth investors. He has real life experience working in the financial and economic sector and during his time as Vice President of Distressed Debt and Convertible Securities Trading at the Lehman Brothers on Wall Street he was regarded as one of their most profitable traders.

Following the collapse of the firm Larry released his best-selling book, which gave an insight into why one of the USA’s most prominent investment banks failed and detailed a risk manager’s guide to all the right and wrong moves. He also explains why it is so important that investors stay ahead of policy moves coming out of Washington and Europe.

" Larry is one of the best traders I ever had the privilege of working with on Wall Street. His integrity, honesty and insight into equity and debt markets make him a rare breed. Not only was Larry a great person, but he had common sense which is surprisingly uncommon! If Larry McDonald was running Lehman, the firm would still be around today. I strongly recommend his book to anyone who’d like to learn how corporate culture destroyed a 150 year old firm, and how to safeguard against inadequate controls. "
