KiteEdge is happy to announce that Yoann Turpin has joined our Advisory board and will also serve as a lead investor. Yoann has been a proprietary trader for the last ten years and has a Masters in Management specialising in Finance from EDHEC Business School. He has been a very successful volatility market maker and arbitrageur in rates options in both the European and the US markets.
He started making illiquid investments 10 years ago in pre-IPO deals and moved towards Seed, pre-Series A and Series A investments in 2010/11, with a focus on B2B SaaS and FinTech. After exiting his option trading partnership in 2014, he started Kaifuku Capital to support his investments and other startups with both finance, strategy and business development with a focus on building bridges between Europe and Asia.
His experience and network will prove invaluable to KiteEdge over the coming months.
