My Expertise

With 20 years of experience in financial markets spanning investment banking, equity sales and investment algorithms development, I have a very strong understanding of the financial industry, from back-office to front-office. My focus is on both business development and candidate consultancy in order to grow the business in Hong Kong.

Area of Focus

I have built my skills over decades of experience, mainly in the equities market and most recently my focus has been on developing investment algorithms. Through my activities, I have managed to build an extensive network of financial professionals, both on sell-side and buy-side, spanning three continents, as well as multiple areas of expertise, that will allow me to focus on the investment banking, hedge funds and asset management sectors, covering front office, operations and tech roles.

My Background

I graduated in Economics with a minor in Option Pricing from Osaka University, and then completed an MBA with a focus on supply chain optimization at the same university, I soon discovered my passion for sales and business development after I started working.  The next 12 years were always in the front office with investment banks like Nomura Securities, UBS, Macquarie Securities and BNP Paribas, in Japan and Hong Kong. In 2016 I decided to try something new, by going back to my roots in option pricing & management science and started research work on artificial intelligence, eventually leading to my work developing investment algorithms.

In my spare time, I like endurance sports training, focusing mainly on IronMan level training nowadays, as well as reading and traveling.
