JJ is one of the top industry professionals it has been my pleasure to know and work with. He brings excellent work ethics to the table as well as a thorough knowledge of the business so that he can take a project from start to finish and create something completely viable and profitable.
I have known JJ for over 19 years in the SBL market, mainly during his time spent at Bear Stearns. He is extremely likeable and I have always found him to be very approachable. He has very good product knowledge and has excellent interaction across all levels, especially with clients.
While I was in charge of program management and applications development for the Bear Stearns' Securities Lending Department, I had the pleasure of working with JJ who was the head of the Stock Loan desk in London. It was because of JJ's pleasant personality and the way he managed the Stock Loan international desk that we were able to develop many of the critical applications that are still being used by the London desk even after Bear Stearns was taken over by JP Morgan. JJ has a thorough understanding of the Stock Loan business and is very detailed oriented. He follows up with various tasks and is able to work with IT very well. JJ has pioneered some of the most critical applications still used by the international desk.
I worked with Mark at HSBC for 10 years. In that time, he led the securities lending team, latterly he was a senior member of the Prime Finance Sales team. Mark has an excellent understanding of all aspects of the stock lending business and continued to have deep relationships with institutional lenders. On the Sales side, he was responsible for a number of tier 1 hedge funds with whom he provided primary cover in stock loan and synthetic Prime Brokerage. Mark has a very good knowledge of the Prime Finance product suite (TRS, Port Swap, securities lending) coupled with an indepth understanding of client needs in event, long/short and leveraged strategies.
