In addition to running his own company, Drew is a professor of finance at Griffith University and a former managing partner of Stonechat Capital. He also has a longstanding professional relationship with MGD.

"Michael and Adam bring with them years of experience and research along with extensive knowledge in these areas and I have full confidence in their ability to navigate the complexities and create true value for our clients", said Barton.
