With this transformative work, along with his long experience in banking, Edge is widely known as an expert in the structuring and execution of innovative financing solutions.

He currently is a partner with Lion’s Head Global Partners, a London-based merchant bank that provides advisory, financial structuring, capital raising and asset management services.

He spent six years within the EEMEA emerging markets team, where he worked primarily in Greece, Hungary, Israel, Turkey and South Africa. In 2002, he joined the European Sovereign Financing team, which he headed from 2006, providing vanilla and innovative financing solutions to Goldman Sachs’ leading franchise in this sector. During this time he worked on transactions in Belgium, Germany and the UK.
