In the world of finance, there are those who stand out above the rest. Harry Harrison is a good example of a leader in the world of finance who has created a good name for himself because of his impact in the markets. For over 20 years, Harrison has worked in investments and finance at Barclays. During this time, he has discovered many truths and formulas about the market that have helped him to succeed. Anthemis Group is the new company that Harrison has decided to focus his efforts on. This digital investment firm has proven to be a driving force in the New York finance scene.
Harrison had a formed a strong curiosity of how companies work on a micro level. This is what led him to decide to work with companies on a much closer level. Instead of managing billions of dollars of funds from a major bank, he is finding out how these companies work on a much more personal level. This gives him a more grounded approach to the investments and consulting that he does today. He has said in interviews that he feels much more grounded as an investor since he has reeled things in on not such a massive scale.
Now that Harrison is self-employed, he has been able to take a much more hands-on approach to his family life. He is very involved in his children’s’ schooling and daily activities. Harrison has also been able to connect with other entrepreneurs more now that he is running his own business. It is exciting for Harrison to be on a much more personal basis with colleagues in his field now that he isn’t managing such a massive amount of funds.
The future looks very bright for Harrison as he is now able to really set his own goals, schedule, and path to future success. It will be interesting to see where the next decade takes Harrison. If the past is any indication of success, it will only be up from here for this new entrepreneur who is a veteran in the field of finance and investing.
