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 partnered with Jean-Pierre Dick and his team, Absolute Dreamer.

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.

Dominique Ceolin, CEO ABC arbitrage


This will be my fourth Vendée Globe. Every time, we’ve built a new boat for the event because it’s in our team’s DNA to design and develop prototypes. This new boat will be the fruit of 13 years of personal experience in IMOCA class racing. I’m delighted to open this new chapter.

Jean-Pierre-Dick, Skipper

In 2016, 20 people at Abc will have the unique opportunity to sail with Jean Pierre on the StMichel-Vibrac.

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!
