About Paco

I have spent my entire career in derivatives and have led the derivatives sales desks at international banks in London (Sumitomo, Commerzbank and Credit Lyonnais) and Spain (Banco Sabadell and Banco Santander).

After realising that clients needed more help than banks could provide, I transferred to ‘the client side’, working for Deloitte, Chatham Financial, EY. At JCRA I assist clients directly, not with the aim of selling solutions but helping them understand their financial markets risks and how to hedge and account for them.

Having been on both sides of the business, I am in a unique position where – with the team at JCRA ­– I can contribute to making complex matters easier for our clients. I can also take the most complex hedging issues off their hands so that they can focus on their core business.

I’m a keen technologist and enjoy following current tech trends and how they are shaping the financial world and our society.

I also love spending time with my family and two young children, helping them grow and become the best they can be.
