Born and bred in Switzerland, I completed undergraduate and graduate studies in the United States, concluding them with a Master of Science degree in Industrial Administration (MBA) at Carnegie Mellon University in 1990.
Following business school I joined Nomura Securities in New York, working in the firm’s structured finance department for nearly four years. After returning to Europe, I was employed in Morgan Stanley’s equity derivatives department for three and half years, for the most part based in London.
Since 1998 I have been active as an independent financial advisor, expert witness and lecturer in Switzerland. I am a member of the Swiss federally approved self-regulating organization VQF.
