Director, Private Assets & Capital Markets

Philippe re-joined Credit Suisse in 2011 after having worked as a CFO in the biotech sector and in Equity Capital Markets of Credit Suisse’s Investment Banking division.
Chief Investment Officer, International Wealth Management
Mike spends a great deal of time on investment processes and decisions, and communicating them. He enjoys playing an integral role at the Private Innovation Circle as it allows him to interrogate company business models a lot more closely.
It allows us to uncover new ideas and entrepreneurs, and to put a rather unique and growing asset class in front of our clients.
Ultra-high net worth investors and their family offices can provide a differentiating aspect to any fundraising.
