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 flew to a new support, the Easy To Fly, the last born foilers, 26 feet catamaran of which he is the designer. He will skip the Easy To Fly sponsored by ABC arbitrage and the city of Nice and participate in 5 regattas, new challenges in perspective for 2018!

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.

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

Two hours of commute per day plus noise at home, it was impossible to work well in these conditions; especially as the preparatory courses are very demanding. Maison Echiquier offers me a comfortable environment in which I can concentrate on my studies, and it is very close to the school. But what I particularly like is the human assistance provided by the program: the headmistress and my mentor are a great support!
