Earlier this year, we were pleased to welcome our new Senior Analyst, Lachlan Bray.
Prior to Leadenhall, Lachlan was an accountant within the business advisory services division at a mid-tier accounting firm for 3.5 years. It was a broad role that encompassed general tax and accounting advisory as well as consulting services to SME businesses.
In regards to any specific specialisations, Lachlan says: “I have a strong interest in the infrastructure space, probably stemming from growing up in a family of engineers. I also have a strong interest in the valuation of derivatives and other bespoke assets which I’m looking forward to exploring at Leadenhall.”
Outside of work, Lachlan loves playing AFL and has recently taken up golf, though he notes: “In hindsight, this may have been a mistake due to how simultaneously addictive and frustrating it is.”
When asked why he’s chosen Leadenhall for the next step in his career, Lachlan says, “The most important factor is the team, having a solid group of people that I look forward to coming in and seeing every day (lockdowns permitting), and I see that at Leadenhall. Also, the broad exposure you get across the valuation space is awesome, one day you can be working on a purchase price allocation and the next on an option valuation – as someone who is early on in their career, this type of exposure is essential.”
