I lead the accounting support practice at JCRA and am involved in diverse initiatives targeting Corporates clients. Joining in 2016, my role has included further developing the support services we provide our clients in various sectors with regards to derivatives and debt valuation and the always complex topic of hedge accounting under international and national accounting standards. I believe that due to our strong technical derivatives expertise, hedging advisors at JCRA are uniquely placed to provide the necessary support allowing clients to adequately explain to stakeholders the impacts that hedging can have in their financial statements, and make decisions considering those.
I have developed my professional career within derivatives - end user space, from leading the derivatives sales desks at international banks in London (Sumitomo, Commerzbank and Credit Lyonnais), to Spanish banks (Banco Sabadell and Banco Santander). After realising that clients needed more help than banks could provide, I transferred to “the client side”, working for Deloitte, Chatham Financial, EY and now JCRA, assisting clients directly, not with the aim of “selling” solutions but helping them understand their financial markets risks and how to hedge and account for them. Having been on both sides of that business places me in an unique position where I, with the team at JCRA, can contribute to making complex things easier to understand for our clients and take the most complex hedging issues off their hands, so that they can focus on the relevant economic decisions for their businesses.
I studied my Business Administration and Master's degree in Business Administration at ESADE in Barcelona. A keen technologist, following very closely current tech trends and how they are shaping the financial world and our society, I love spending time with my family and two young children, helping them grow and become the best they can be.
