Mark Tennyson d’Eyncourt
Mark Tennyson d’Eyncourt started in the market in 1963, with Durlachers, arguably the leading equity jobber of the day. After spells with Govetts (later Hoare & Co Govett) and Scrimgeours, he moved into fund management with Wallace Bros Sassoon, just before the great bear market of 1973-74. This was when he started to look at technical analysis seriously, when, clearly, fundamental analysis wasn’t working. For ten years he ran the Qatar Investment Office in London, providing strategic advice for the state reserves.
He joined ACTA in 1984, and the Committee in 1986, just before its incorporation as STA. For some years he has been involved with Programme Organisation and also acted as Company Secretary. He was honoured with a Fellowship in December 2009.
