Christopher Kennedy started his career with the Bank of England before moving to the stockbrokers Hoare Govett. After a secondment to the Panel on Take-Overs and Mergers for two years, he moved to Hong Kong for three years as a director of the Far East business. He then returned to London to focus on institutional investment management for pension funds and charities. Following a period at British & Commonwealth Merchant Bank, he joined Robert Fleming where he became a founder member of the team specialising in the investment of charitable funds. This gave him a wide range of experience in the sector with roles advising professional bodies, medical and service charities, livery companies and grant-giving trusts. He became a Trustee at Bletchley Park in 2005 after serving an apprenticeship as a volunteer in the Archives.
Christopher read Economics and Russian History at the University of East Anglia. He is also Trustee of three other charities and sits on an advisory group at his local surgery.
