Andrew set up Holland Advisors in 2009 after a 20 year career in stock broking and fund management. His career in the investment industry began in 1988 at the age of 18 first at Henderson Investors followed by a few years at the British Gas Pension Fund, both in buy side analyst positions.
After taking a year off to travel in 1994 he joined Smith New Court which was later taken over by Merrill Lynch. There Andrew was an equity analyst and salesman specialising in the transport and telecoms sectors, latterly taking a wider research and sales role covering the whole stock market. He joined Redburn Partners as a Partner in 2004 where he worked up until setting up Holland Advisors in 2009. He has had a passion for value and franchise investing for many years and the Farnam Street Capital Fund, designed to encapsulate this passion, was established in 2011.
When he is not in the office, Andrew can be found reading anything written by great investors or business managers, swinging a golf club or trying to keep up with his wife and teenage boys on a ski slope.
