I am responsible for JCRA’s advisory business in Canada, and am a member of the global management team. In this role I work with my colleagues to design and execute hedging solutions across numerous asset classes including interest rates, FX, power, and credit. Providing this expertise to Canadian clients is particularly rewarding given the long-dated nature of their risk exposures.
Having spent 25 years in banking, primarily in derivatives, I opened my own practice, Nauset Derivative Advisory, in 2012. My decision to build an advisory business in Canada was influenced by observing that only those that had worked at banks really understood the intricacies of the derivative market, and banks had an inherent conflict of interest in offering independent hedging advice. My clients felt the same way, and in Nauset’s first two years I advised on over $3bn of transactions.
While deciding how to expand my advisory practice, I was introduced to JCRA. As our discussions progressed, it became evident to me that my clients would be best served by having access to the varied backgrounds of derivative professionals in a global firm and the market transparency we could provide given the deal flow we see across jurisdictions annually. We opened JCRA’s Canadian office in September 2015.
