Our team is growing

We’re pleased to welcome a new member to the Ruffena team, Toby Kernon.

Toby spent his first 10 years in the City of London as a financial options broker and then trader for several large institutions including Chase Manhattan and SBC Warburg. Building businesses within these institutions and setting up an office overseas in the Netherlands. During the second 10 years, Toby ran his self-funded government bond trading business, guiding it successfully through the turmoil of the U.S. housing crisis.

Toby is currently the co-founder of a small sports social network with extensive knowledge in online digital and social platforms. Successfully built the company from concept phase, raised seed funding from angel investors and assumed controlling share. This experience both within big institutions and niche tech start-ups puts him in a strong position to advise companies on all stages of their lifespan.
