Team

A diverse group that has worked together long enough to build lasting trust.
We believe that to have a different perspective, we must have team members that have different points of view. Our team is thus intentionally diverse, with varying backgrounds and origins – including French, Swiss, Brazilian, American and Spanish. The core of our team has been working together for many years. As a result, we have good understanding of each other’s’ personalities, which means that we can work effectively through the ups and downs inherent in financial markets. Because we’ve been through various cycles together successfully, out trust in each other continues to grow.
