Before entering politics, newly appointed chancellor Rishi Sunak was an analyst for investment bank Goldman Sachs. He then worked in hedge fund and investment fund management. And his ideas appear to reflect this resumé. The private-school-educated politician has been touted for the top since his arrival in parliament five years ago. And having backed Boris Johnson in the Conservative leadership contest in 2019, he became chief secretary to the Treasury once Johnson entered Downing Street in July. In 2016, Sunak produced a report in the right-wing Centre for Policy Studies thinktank about the merits of introducing ‘free ports’ post-Brexit.
