He is Chairman of the Ritossa Family Office which represents the distillation of 600 years of history – of a grove, a family and a region. The gnarled roots of the Ritossa olive groves have persevered through war and natural disasters, through changes of climate and country, and under the rule of warrior princes, wealthy merchant kings and modern despots.

The Ritossa Family Office is known for its contrarian and thematic investments. These include the US Subprime Crisis, the European Sovereign Debt, Banking Crisis, strategic PE, RE and blockchain allocations.

He has over 30 years of international financial markets and investment experience. Before his family office role, Sir Anthony is recognized for his distinguished Wall Street career in New York. He has held senior executive positions at Nomura, Barclays Capital, Morgan Stanley, BNP Paribas, and Bankers Trust (acquired by Deutsche Bank).

The Ritossa Family Office is host to The Global Family Office Investment Summits. The Summit Series has made global headlines as the world’s largest and most exclusive gathering of the private wealth of all time. 600+ Elite Family Offices, Prominent Business Owners, Sheikhs, Royal Families, Private Investment Companies, Sovereign Wealth Funds & industry professionals from around the globe convene representing more than $4.5 trillion in wealth.
