Born and grown-up in Switzerland since 2006, b-Sharpe is a Fintech that provides discount exchange rates for small and middle sized companies as well as private individuals.
b-Sharpe is a financial intermediary regulated by the OAR-G which is itself affiliated with FINMA, the Federal Supervisory Authority of Swiss Financial Markets
I founded b-Sharpe in Geneva in 2006, having gained experience in large financial institutions such as HSBC, UBS and the Synthesis bank, in foreign exchange and international transfers.
Used to working on large accounts, I soon found out that the exchange terms available to these “important” clients were not quite the same as those offered to individual customers and SMEs.
I then decided to provide a functionally equivalent service, in foreign exchange for these individuals and SMEs, that is secure, fast and above all at a fair price: so the b- Sharpe service was born.
Today, my mission is simple: Implement “uberisation” of exchange rates, for the benefit of the greatest number: SME Cross Border Employees, expats and individuals. Jean-Marc Sabet
My motto: All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move. Benjamin Franklin
What I like about the work that I undertake today at b-Sharpe, beyond the human dimension of the company, is the mixture of, and balance between the highly technical financial markets and the virtually local service we provide to our customers, whether they are changing 5,000 euros or are a large SME making transactions of several million per month.
I was able to acquire these financial skills in particular at “la Caisse des Dépôts” in Paris, where I worked on the team managing the listed investments of that public institution. However, the currencies aspect of my profile was truly enriched by working as a product developer for the world specialist in the management of foreign exchange, Overlay Asset Management, in London.
I acquired my first professional experience in a bank. And I don’t know how to say it, but at the time it was barely connected to the Web … Fortunately, things have changed, and I have since helped several banks and financial institutions in their digital transformation, both in Switzerland and other European Union countries.
I also created a business and several sites, including one which is very well known since it is one of the most popular sites for expats and employment in Switzerland.
Very interested in new technologies, I try to use the full potential of digital and to make it available to companies. Which is particularly what I have tried to do in advising b-Sharpe.
