Philippe Sabbah graduated from business school in Paris in 1988, and spent ten years working in trading rooms across the world, from Madrid to Hong Kong. In 1999, he opened the Zurich office of Crédit Agricole Asset Management, before joining JP Morgan. He would go on to supervise investments for institutional clients for seven years, before leaving to develop the French branch of Threadneedle Investments. A few years later, he switched gears again to start his own company as a financial advisor. His deep personal experience and detailed understanding of financial markets form the backbone of the series "Hedge Fund" (Le Lombard; Europe Comics in English), a financial thriller created alongside Tristan Roulot and Patrick Hénaff.
