Gregory Cox 'told sexual assault victim: this will never go anywhere'

A British millionaire allegedly sexually assaulted a young woman he met at a fashionable bar in Sydney and then told her "this will never go anywhere - I've got a lot of money", a court has heard.

Gregory Cox, 32, the founder and chief executive of the UK-based Quintessential Finance Group and a graduate of the exclusive Millfield boarding school near Somerset, has admitted to a sexual encounter with the woman – a 21-year-old from Bermuda – but claims she consented.

The trial started with a new jury this week after the first jury was discharged last week for legal reasons.
