Meet Géraud from Easyvest

Géraud Missonnier, 38 years old. Home: Uccle. Title: Wealth Manager.

Géraud Missionnier, Wealth Manager at Easyvest.

Finance and the markets, you have made it your job, but it is above all a passion, isn't it?

Let's just say I've always liked it! When I was studying at the Sorbonne in Paris more than 15 years ago, I started a club of investors that speculated on currencies. The operation was very simple: after having each invested €1.000, we met in a small restaurant once a week with the Financial Times and Les Échos under our arms to decide on the positions to take. We were doing it as amateurs, I was the only account holder, and we didn't do too badly!

It was therefore natural that you began your career in banking…

One of the club members had set up a structure later bought by Saxo Bank, and that's how I then joined the bank myself. At Saxo, I specialized in day trading and I regularly organized webinars on the subject: much riskier strategies than index management… Then, I cut my teeth as a private banker at Banque Transatlantique, among others, before joining Easyvest.

Why this choice?

I had already met Matthieu and Corentin several years ago at an event, so I followed the evolution of Easyvest from a distance. When the opportunity arose to join the team, I did not hesitate for long! In traditional private banks, you obviously have the possibility of building up a good clientele… but you can also go around in circles quite quickly. What drives me here is to grow the business, to be proactive within the team and to participate in the achievement of Easyvest's ambitions.

Personally, what type of investor are you?

Given my background as a stockbroker, I invest around two-thirds of my assets in individual stocks and one-third in ETFs. But it is clear that it is a choice that requires time, knowledge and an appetite for risk that not everyone has!

Apart from the stock markets, what drives you in life?

I am an organizer. I love organizing events, bringing people together, having a good time in a group. Also, I am a big tennis fan. I started at 3 years old with my twin brother and I never stopped playing or following world tennis. I try to go to Roland Garros every year… Finally, because of my French-Belgian identity, I am also quite interested in oenology and the history of France.
