Etienne Brunet

Investment Executive
How I got here:

I worked for Magister Advisors, a Technology M&A boutique based in London, focused on sell-side and capital raising for European companies. Before that, I was in Investment Banking at Bryan Garnier in Paris.

For the first time in history…

…financial institutions are having to face the simultaneous systemic changes driven by deleveraging, regulation and compliance. At the same time, a new breed of technology companies has emerged with innovative solutions. Thus, sell-side and buy-side participants need to address the challenge to find, validate and adopt innovative FinTech solutions.

I tell people not to forget…

…having the best technology is not sufficient to become a leader. A clear vision and use case of your product is what drives true adoption.
