I am a Director and head up the Private Equity and Corporates team at JCRA. In a complex and fast-changing environment, my job is to make sure the team delivers the best value to our clients and that we maintain our top class expertise in derivatives. My work is very diversified and each advisory engagement is different and requires a fresh mind to understand the situation, business model, regulatory framework and the financial risks. I also spend time with new and existing clients to discuss risk management topics and future challenges the industry will face.
I joined JCRA in March 2017. Prior to this, I spent three years at Nomura where I was part of the FX structuring team looking after Private Equity and Corporate clients. I also spent nine years at Société Générale, where I built and headed up the London FX structuring team for both Corporate and Institutional clients. Since March 2017, I have been involved in several high-profile transactions, from FX deal-contingent hedges in multibillion cross-border M&A to large interest rate financing/refinancing situations. My main areas of focus are FX and deal contingency. The experience I have acquired as a top deal-contingent provider helps my clients achieve the best financial and legal terms for those hedging solutions.
I am an Actuary (Institut de Science Financière et d'assurance in France) and I hold a Master’s degree in International Finance Professional from the HEC School of Management, Paris. I also completed an MCT Advanced Diploma in Treasury, Risk and Corporate Finance in 2014.
When I am not working I like to be active (running, swimming and biking), and spend time with my wife and two children. New Year resolution or midlife crisis, I have signed up for my first off-road triathlon for 2018, and all support messages are welcome.
