About the author


A History graduate from Cambridge, Meyrick Chapman began his career in finance in 1982 on the trading desk of a commodity house. He moved to investment banking in the late 1980s and worked as a proprietary trader for several years at Banker Trust. In 1997 he joined then Swiss Banking Corporation (later to become UBS) framing strategy in international bond markets. It was in this role that he gained first hand experience of the colossal international capital flows that eventually led to the financial crisis which are investigated in "Fooled Again". He has contributed to policy think tanks, industry magazines and the general financial press as well as speaking at many international conferences. He is married with two children and lives in West London
