Nicolas has been with J.P. Morgan for close to three decades in a career that has taken him all over the world and allowed him to meet with some of the planet’s most influential people in business and governments. He has been based in Hong Kong since 2012 and spent a lot of time meeting clients across the region and in particular China. We are delighted that he has agreed to share his views with us over dinner on how to have a successful and rewarding career in global companies as well as the opportunities and challenges faced by multi-national corporations and financial institutions in China as the country continues to further liberalize its markets.
