We're less than a week into the new working year, but if you're already feeling fatigued with work in 2020, a former JPMorgan banker's recent career trajectory offers some hope.
Two and a half years ago, James Crispin was head of the European structured products group syndicate at JPMorgan in London. Then his job was reportedly put at risk and he spent a few years kicking back as a school governor and the chairman of a charitable trust.
Now, however, Crispin is back - but only part time.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Crispin is now the director of capital markets and institutional sales for Funding Circle, the peer to peer lending market place. He began his new role this month, but seemingly won't be doing it every day of the week. In a LinkedIn post, Crispin says he will be focused on Funding Circle's asset backed securitisation (ABS) programme and the wider institutional funding business. He declined to say what 'part time' consists of.
Funding Circle had a difficult 2019. The company's share price fell 75% following its IPO in 2018 amidst falling growth, economic uncertainty, and investor's concerns about delays withdrawing money from the business. Crispin isn't the only ex-banker to get rehoused there. - Head of capital markets sales Dominic Peasley formerly worked for Goldman Sachs, as did capital markets director Julieta Ronzano. Chief capital officer Sachin Patel was a former VP at Barclays and associate at JPMorgan.
