Jacques Olivier – Professor of faculty, Dean of faculty – HEC Paris
I first met Loic Henry almost 10 years ago when I became academic director of the HEC MSc in International Finance. Loic taught then, and still teaches today, one of the best appreciated classes of the program (about FX derivatives trading). This is quite a remarkable achievement when one takes into account the extent to which the program has changed during this period. Ten years ago indeed, the program was taught in French and the student population was very homogeneous (graduates from French engineering school) while now, the program is exclusively taught in English with ~90% international students from very diverse backgrounds.
Besides his qualities as a lecturer, Loïc has been an important contributer to the program in at least two other respects:
* As a mentor for the many former students he hired and helped groom for leadership positions on trading desks in US, Europe and Asia.
* As a frequent member of admission jurys, where he always strove to get the best out of candidates interviewed
I thus wholeheartedly recommend Loic as a passionate, dedicated and benevolent professional.
