Jacques is an expert comptable (the French equivalent of a chartered accountant) and statutory auditor (he wrote his thesis on securitization). Educated at Sciences Po – France’s renowned political science institute – he worked several years in the banking and finance department of a Big Four audit firm. He decided in 2005 to start his own independent, high end practice focused on the finance industry in response to the emergence of numerous new market players. These goals and positioning have led him to work closely with MJ & Cie to round out the offering of corporate services required by complex family estates. Jacques is also a sports enthusiast and competitively ranked table tennis player, achievements which bear witness to his rigor, determination and ability to think on his feet.
