Desk Head, Structured Products and OTC Derivatives
Who I am
I was born in Belgium, where I studied engineering. After that, I started working immediately in the financial sector in Luxembourg. I began in IT, a logical next step after my studies. However, my desire was to develop my career in the direction of financial markets, which had always fascinated me.
I am laidback and love travelling, especially in South America.
What I do
I work at the Structured Products and OTC Option desk in the Global Financial Markets department of KBL epb in Luxembourg. We offer investment ideas on the various underlyings available in the financial markets (equities, rates, currency, etc). We also cover the different geographical zones of the financial world. We use this knowledge to construct tailor-made financial products for our clients across the group that best reflect their individual financial needs.
What I think
Working in the field of derivatives combines mathematics and imagination. Our tasks range from pricing financial instruments to creatively developing strategies. Being able to offer and control these instruments is vital in order for an international group like KBL epb to meet the needs of all its clients, even those with the most sophisticated requests. Keeping up with the markets and our clients’ needs is a daily challenge.
