“They don’t call him ‘The King’ for nothing” Darius Grayer, 2003
Being both CEO and Chairman of Colmekill Inc., his influence is felt within all departments, from FOIBS to BOIBS (Back Office Investment Bank Services).
His portfolio contains a wide variety of clients; including business titans, such as Alphabet Inc. and Oracle Corp., as well as the local businesses of his home town, who entrust him with their money to this day.
When not dominating the stock markets, Duncan is a regular family man, often spending time with his son Malcolm and daughter Donalbain. Having inherited their father’s ambition, they hope to continue his legacy onto the next generation. Through 25 years of hard work, Duncan ‘The King’ has become one the greatest financial minds of the modern age, and has placed himself firmly within the ruling class of investment banking.
Malcolm of Colmekill has been acting as a Non-Executive Director for three years, with his main focus revolving around the acquisition and marketing of new clientele.
He received an undergraduate degree at Stanford University and later earned master’s degrees from University College, Oxford and Columbia University’s Mailman School of public Health, and a Doctor of Philosophy in international relations from the University of Oxford. He spent a short time at Credit Suisse to help further develop his knowledge of the financial services market outside the family business.
Last year, Malcolm set up his own charitable foundation, the purpose of which is still currently being decided upon. In his spare time he often enjoys skiing in Austria, backpacking in the Andes, yachting around the Indian ocean and paddle-boarding in Devon.
Donalbain is company founder Duncan’s daughter, and Non-executive director alongside her older brother Malcolm. Having graduated from Yale School of Management in 2017, she took a year out to travel in Europe, particularly enjoying Italy. Following a couple of unlucky romances in Verona, she’s ready and excited to be back in New York and getting involved in the family business. She is currently enjoying shadowing in various departments and getting a sense of the variety of operations at the company. She also loves a good power suit so is enjoying having the chance to wear them every day!
In her spare time, Donalbain loves to watch foreign language films and is determined not to lose her Italian now she’s back in the states. She has recently taken up running as a hobby and loves to forget the stress of the business world and lose herself in the endless New York streets. Her other passion is her gorgeous Maine Coon cat, Sylvie, a gift from Duncan on her joining the company.

Fitness and sport are fundamental to his life and if he is not in the gym he can often be found hiking or on the golf course.

I am the CEO of Asset and Wealth Management. Essentially, my role is worrying about money so you don’t have to!
My background is in corporate finance and regulation, but recently I have made the transition to more individual-client work. Whilst at university studying finance and economics I looked at the relationship between state and corporate responsibilities, and I now adopt this holistic approach to real-life business scenarios. Throughout all aspects of my work, I want actors to achieve their full potential and if myself or any member of my team can help in that respect, we’ve done our job.
In my spare time, I enjoy sailing, hiking and being outdoors with my son.
