Patrick is a Visiting Scholar at the University of Edinburgh where he is further developing his Market Mind Hypothesis (MMH) together with other researchers. To that end he founded the Market Mind Research Platform, a unique cooperation between the universities of Edinburgh and Sussex.

His technical papers have been published in various peer-reviewed journals and he regularly presents his work at conferences and seminars. Previously Patrick worked internationally in banking but mostly in investment management, including in London, New York, and Singapore. Most recently he was the global multi-asset strategist of Aegon Asset Management (UK) and co-managed, supporting the CIO, its flagship Mixed Fund (£8bn). Before that he held senior positions with F. van Lanschot Bank. He started his career at Barclays Bank as a member of its European Management Development Program. Patrick has a PhD and two master’s degrees. His professional investment qualifications include (the Dutch equivalent of) the CFA, CEFA and CMT designations.
