At Credit Suisse, he worked in New York, London and most recently Singapore, developing the bank’s e-FX electronic options market-making platform and researching systematic relative value strategies in currencies on over-the-counter and listed markets.


Mazars, the international accountancy and advisory firm, has appointed Paul Joyce as a partner and head of corporate finance in London. Paul is a chartered accountant with over 12 years’ experience of working on mergers and acquisitions for a wide range of management team, private equity and corporate clients.
