Leading financial risk consultancy JCRA is delighted to announce the appointment of Benoit Duhil de Benaze as Director. Working from their London offices, Benoit will help to drive and further establish JCRA’s offering in the Financial Sponsor and Corporate markets across the UK and Europe.
Before joining JCRA, Benoit spent three years at Nomura where he was an Executive Director in the FX structuring team and involved in several high-profile transactions for Private Equity and Corporate clients. Prior to Nomura, he spent nine years at Société Générale where he built and headed up the London FX structuring team for both Corporate and Institutional clients.
JCRA CEO Jackie Bowie says, “Benoit brings with him some superb experience in FX risk management as well as G10 and emerging markets knowledge and derivative solution structuring and advisory. His depth, and very current knowledge, in Deal-Contingent hedging for both FX and interest rates is also a real coup for us and is expertise our clients’ really value.”
2016 was a busy year for Deal Contingent hedging, with more Financial Sponsors and Corporates deploying this hedging for risk mitigation.
“I’m eagerly anticipating joining the team at JCRA”, says Benoit. “They are the pre-eminent hedging advisor in this sector and with my experience and background; I’m well placed to provide quality advice and support to clients in this very uncertain environment.
“Deal Contingent will remain a key cost-efficient strategy to hedge FX and IR risk in this environment and, as more and more banks are able to offer this solution, awareness and therefore demand will grow. The increase in overall capacity that this creates will keep price competitiveness and I look forward to helping clients take advantage of that.”
Benoit starts at JCRA today and joins a high-performing Private Equity team who advise on more than 100 transactions each year, providing unbiased, bespoke advice.
