His Excellency Sir Patrick Bijou is believed to be worth an undisclosed sum, but his estimated wealth is several billion as of 2021, and he has donated more than $50 million to charitable causes. Much of that money has gone to fund education and health programs, human rights efforts, and the furtherance of democracy. In recent years, he has donated funds to create missions in his native South America, where he has established infrastructure, hospitals, medical care and schools for the indigenous Amazonian Indians in memory of his late mother, Easter and Amerindian herself.
Sir Patrick is unique among highly successful investors in admitting that instinct plays a prominent role in his investment decisions and strategies. Nonetheless, he is famously well informed about economic trends on a regional and global level and is known to use this knowledge to exploit market inefficiencies with significantly, highly leveraged positioning.
He has the capital and the risk tolerance for riding out these positions for longer than most hedge fund managers can. In fact, he has cowed a number of national governments on currency issues with his perseverance and financial means.
Despite Sir Patrick’s profound knowledge of the global markets and excellent sources of information, the decision to close out transactions is reportedly more a gut call than a response to a market signal. One popular theory is that he has internalized so much of the market and its workings that he instinctively knows when the time has come to close out for a profit long before he can rationalize the decision. Whether that is true or not, whatever Sir Patrick is doing has made him a fortune that few investors in the world can match.
Sir Patrick was responsible for establishing the MTN & Private Placement Desk and dealer function within Lloyds Bank PLC. He was the first trader for Lloyd’s treasury to significantly increase the portion of self-led deals from 4% to 32% in 2002.
He was awarded many accolades such as the Multiple Recipient, Wells Fargo “Valley of the Stars” award. Recipient, Wells Fargo “Circle of Stars” award, and Member of Wells Fargo Millionaire Club and Champion Circle and finally became the notable banker he is today.
His finance and international law proficiency were paramount to his election as a member of the Panel Arbitrators of the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes. He manages to fit all this in and current roles as Fund Manager for LWP Capital, Ambassador for WPT, philanthropist, and a renowned author, amongst many other interests.
His authorship has earned him fame because his publications are not limited to a particular genre or theme but from adventurous, thrilling, romantic, criminal, and dramatic fictional novels.
He has written over 25 published fictional and non-fictional books across several genres.
His Excellency is a Global Ambassador for the International Rights and Welfare Association (IRAWA), Ambassador of the Royal Diplomatic Club, and President of the Commonwealth Entrepreneurs Club.

One of his most significant career achievements was creating a line of credit for international supply chains and SMEs for the public sector and government funding. He has also fashioned the economic phenomenon of Contract for Difference (CFD), a concept regarded as hugely pioneering, that today banks and trading institutions adopt. CFD has changed the way trades are executed across capital markets by using clever leverage ratios. He has written journals and books about CFD and how to become wealthy by implementing his trading, asset management, and wealth creation strategies. It became the distinguishing feature of his PhD thesis.
