Welcome to the official web-site of Felix Riley. His latest writing ventures and other ventures will be detailed here as they happen.
Felix Riley studied Mental Philosophy at Edinburgh University. He began his career as a writer for radio and television. A change in career took him into the City where he worked for the major US brokerage Cantor Fitzgerald. Felix’s last job in the City was for MF Global – the American brokerage that recently went into liquidation after its executives plundered client monies to cover the company’s outsized bets. Luckily, Felix had launched and sold his own company in 2008, just moments before the financial system imploded.
His first novel, The Set Up, tackled the real-life banking conspiracy that created the Credit Crunch. His latest novel, The Inside Job, confronts the scandal of bankers’ bonuses.
