Charles Lesser

Charles has over 20 years’ experience advising natural resources companies. In 2006 he left UBS Warburg to co-found Tristone Capital Europe, an advisory firm. Within three years Tristone was the number one advisor to independent oil & gas companies and the leading source of equity for these companies based in Europe.

Tristone was soon acquired by Macquarie, where Charles then headed up the EMEA Energy Investment Banking business. His teams have won numerous awards including Advisor of the Year, Extel #1, Greenwich #1, Reuters #1), raised billions for the industry, and have never been outsold in an equity raising.

Charles joined Panmure Gordon in 2018 to rebuild the firm’s prominence in advising natural resources companies.
