Aymeric brings over 20 years of experience in Capital Markets and financial engineering. Interest in Impact Investing and Sustainable Finance led him to investigate innovative investment approaches to finance the local economy, with a specific focus on food, health and farming.
Aymeric holds a Master in Business Management and a Master in International Finance from the University Paris IX Dauphine. Before joining Quadia, Aymeric worked at Lehman Brothers and Nomura in London as head of fund derivatives structuring and product specialist. Previously he had similar activities at Credit Suisse and Crédit Lyonnais and initiated numerous product innovations leading to the delivery of new solutions for investors such as the first reverse convertible notes or options linked to fund of hedge funds. He also coordinated the team in charge of restructuring the Lehman Brothers SPV portfolios linked to hedge funds after 2008.
Since 2013, Aymeric’s activities have been concentrated on responsible investing and as a result he, with colleagues, founded Slow Money Francophone, an investor alliance (launched first in 2009 in California) for supporting domestic food systems and organic farming. He is also a member of Sustainable Finance Geneva (SFG), a board member of Terre de Liens, (a French association buying farmland to support organic farmers), Slow Food Suisse, Lunt Foundation, and of NiceFuture (a Swiss association for an ecological transition). Aymeric is regularly a speaker at events around ethical finance, food and farming, such as “Les Entretiens de Sologne with Intelligence Verte” and “G21 Swisstainability forum with Nice Future”. He is also writing a blog for SFG and the Swiss magazine “Bilan”.
