Our ‘coups de cœur’

The importance of commitment in a changing world

Or how we share our values

Jean-Pierre Dick

Ambassador of tenacity
Since 2007, ABC arbitrage has been a partner and official supporter of Jean-Pierre Dick and the Absolute Dreamer team.

While at first sight, competitive sailing and arbitrage seem to have little in common, amazing similarities emerge.

Our professions are really quite close in terms of the challenges we must deal with. At sea or on shore, we try to reconcile often contradictory factors: meticulous preparation, responsiveness, audacity and ambition tempered with a great deal of humility.
We share a simultaneous quest for performance and reliability with a focus on both technology and management.

Easy To Fly : Jean-Pierre Dick flies with the Easy To Fly, the latest foiler, an 26 feet catamaran of which he's the designer. He is the skipper of the Easy To Fly sponsored by ABC arbitrage and the city of Nice. This season, two French historic events: the National in La Rochelle and the Spi Ouest France in La Trinité in September 2020.

I watched the catamarans in the last America’s Cup with great admiration. They set me dreaming and inspired me to contribute to the history of flying multihulls. Then the Easy to Fly concept then seemed the obvious step: small in scale, a happy medium between the dinghy and extreme racing, make the adrenaline of flying accessible to amateur crews.

Jean-Pierre Dick, Skipper

Since 2012, each year, 20 employees at ABC arbitrage have the unique opportunity to sail with Jean-Pierre or his team on StMichel-Virbac or to take off aboard the Easy To Fly.

Les Maisons des Jeunes Talents

Train our future talents
Les Maisons des Jeunes Talents is an equal opportunity program, led by the Fondation Groupe Primonial, which makes the preparatory classes accessible to everyone.
This program provides access to free accommodation and individual support for young scholarship students from disadvantaged backgrounds, motivated by preparatory classes for prestigious grandes écoles and who don't have a favorable environment to this project.

ABC arbitrage sponsors every year, since 2014, two students in preparatory classes for engineering schools; through the funding of their accommodation and support, but also by giving them the opportunity to meet and share with employees.
Train & convey our knowledge and our convictions for the future
Our "sponsors" at ABC arbitrage dedicate time to coaching and encouraging their godchildren, both moral and methodological support


Equal opportunities program
52 Students in 2020

The "sponsors" are essential for us to imagine a future perspective after the preparatory class, to share their experiences in the professional world and its requirements, but above all they have been there to support us during this particularly difficult year 2020. thanks to them.
