My Expertise

Drawing upon a 10-year international buy-side career spanning across multi-asset, equities, fixed income, property, ESG, compliance, and derivatives I possess in-depth knowledge of the industry. I present a discerning perspective for both client and candidate, offering market intelligence and trusted career solutions. I pride myself in maximizing professional potential and unlocking long-lasting success. You can rely on me to execute with speed and rigor.

Area of Focus

My focal point remains Tier 1 buy-side and banking senior and executive level recruitment, predominantly in Japan and the US. Though my expertise lends itself naturally to leadership and front-office roles, my coverage also extends to distribution and client-facing functions. I leverage a relationship-built approach to uncover multilingual talent drawing upon my English, French, and Japanese fluency.

My Background

As an enterprising and top-performing investment strategist, I guided $150 billion in client assets across both public and private global markets for a world-class asset management group. My blend of financial and technical acumen, coupled with versatility, sets me apart within the field. My career—spanning three continents—also provided me with diversified exposure in key analyst roles within front and middle office.I have lived in Japan for about 5 years and joined Ascent Global Partners in 2023 to align my passions for finance and shaping successful careers. Outside the professional sphere, I am a seasoned outdoor enthusiast who enjoys hiking summits in the warmer months and skiing off-piste down them when the temperature drops.
