He is the elder son of Raymond Bonham Carter, who was a merchant banker, and Elena (née Proper de Callejón), a psychotherapist of Jewish descent.

He went to Harrow School[1] and the University of Manchester[1] where he studied Economics and Politics.[3] He is a distant cousin of the actor Crispin Bonham Carter.


He was appointed Chief Investment Officer of Jupiter Fund Management in July 1999.[4] In 2000, he took over as joint chief executive when John Duffield left over disagreements with the management of Commerzbank. In 2007 he led a management buy-out,[1] supported by US private equity firm TA Associates in which Jupiter staff (95% of whom bought shares in Jupiter) took a majority stake in the business. In June 2010, Bonham Carter led an Initial Public Offering (IPO) of the Company on the London Stock Exchange. Employees remain significant holders of Jupiter's shares. In January 2014 he became a non executive director of property firm Land Securities and in March 2014 Bonham Carter stepped back from his role as CEO of Jupiter to become Vice Chairman. He was succeeded by Maarten Slendebroek who joined the firm from Blackrock in September 2012.
