He worked for Banca Akros in Milan between 1992-1994, then moved to London where he successively worked for major investment banks Kleinwort Benson (1994-1996), JP Morgan Chase (1996-2001) and Bear Stearns (2001-2004), developing his skills in M&A, capital markets, credit and risk analysis.

He comes with an impressive career track but, above all, a deep understanding of the risk challenges of a modern banking organisation and of the strategies to address them”, said APS Bank’s CEO Marcel Cassar.
