What I do
I joined Architas in December 2016 - not alone but with a bunch of colleagues from AXA Life Invest Services, from Paris and Singapore. In 2017, I focussed on the integration of this new team into Architas. Rapidly becoming involved in the Architas Investment Partner initiative, I also acquired the role as Head of Product.
Where I’ve been
After engineering and a business school degree, I started my career with a risky bet. I joined Crédit Lyonnais as a trader in equity derivatives when the bank was close to bankruptcy. By the time I left , I was Head of Trading for Europe. Having moved from Paris to London, I managed four offices across Europe, covering ten markets. It was all a great adventure and extremely demanding. I then switched direction completely to become a househusband.
What I’ve learnt
As a househusband, I had to adjust to life without a job title or business responsibilities. At first this was an unsettling experience, but it soon turned into a very refreshing one. I saw the world through fresh eyes, learning to better distinguish what’s important and what’s not. Every day I try not to forget it.
