About Benoit

I joined JCRA in 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 Societe Generale, where I built and headed up the London FX structuring team for both corporate and institutional clients.

At JCRA 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.

When I am not working I like to be active (running, swimming and biking), and to 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.
