David Murrin



David Murrin is one of those rare creatures – he not only possesses a massive amount of knowledge about financial markets and investment but he looks at the sector from a totally different perspective than most other observers.

This makes him the perfect choice for an event where a motivational speaker is needed who can fascinate the audience and have them searching their own business practices for ways to adopt some of David’s genuinely unique strategies. An illustration of David Murrin’s thinking can be found in his book Breaking The Code Of History.

David has built up his knowledge with a quarter of a century spent working in financial markets, including time spent at JP Morgan where he set up and managed the bank’s European Market Analysis Group, creating new behavioural investment techniques.

Never one to rest on his laurels, motivational speaker David Murrin went on to found Apollo Asset Management then Emergent Asset Management, an organisation that specialises in financial investment for emerging markets. With a motto of “pro alia” (which means before others), Emergent claims to have predicted the major shifts in geopolitical power over the last 10 years.

David has also set up Spartent Global Solutions, working with two former members of the Special Boat Service, to offer customers around the world a range of security services, including maritime security.

“I would highly recommend David Murrin as a keynote speaker to any event organizers putting together conferences or meetings for high-level executives. His presentation, “The Geopolitics of Modern Africa for Investors,” at our African Cup of Investment Management conference in Cape Town, South Africa, was a fascinating and entertaining session that proved extremely popular with our attendees. David spoke to a packed room of representatives from across Africa’s finance industry, and his presentation was singled out as a highlight of the day-and-a-half conference by several attendees. It was a pleasure to meet David and I would enthusiastically recommend him as a keynote speaker.”Tim Bailey, Conference Producer, Information Management Network (IMN)

“David addressed the Royal College of Defence Studies for the first time in 2013.  His presentation on the impact of Leaders in the historical cycles of empires provided a compelling and thoughtful proposition.  David’s analysis is provocative, challenging and highly persuasive, and his talk generated much interest among the 90 Members who represent over 50 countries. Without doubt, he provided one of the genuine highlights of this high-quality 2013 Course.”Nick J Caplin CB, Major General, Senior Directing Staff (Army), Royal College of Defence Studies
