Oct 15 2014 | 9:51am ET

Risk management consultant JCRA Financial has hung its shingle in San Francisco and appointed Fabrice Centeno to helm it.

JCRA provides independent financial risk management advice to U.S. private equity firms, corporations and governmental entities regarding their financial exposures including interest rate, credit, foreign exchange and inflation risks. Centeno will be responsible for establishing and managing operations in the West Coast office, as well as seeking new regional opportunities.
Centeno has over 12 years of capital markets and risk management advisory experience with both multinational corporations and government-sponsored entities. Prior to joining JCRA, he headed a team at J.P. Morgan Securities in London, marketing derivative-based solutions to hedge balance sheet risks including interest rate, FX, inflation, credit and commodities.  

Said William Kloehn, CEO of JCRA Financial, in a statement: “It gives me great pleasure to announce the opening of our new office in San Francisco and the appointment of Fabrice Centeno. Fabrice’s wealth of experience across our key sectors—public, corporate, leveraged finance and real estate—and the potential growth in each of these sectors on the West Coast, means we are now ideally placed to capitalize on that potential and to further develop our business.”

Founded in 2008, JCRA Financial is a subsidiary of London-based J.C Rathbone Holdings, a leading advisor in the interest rate, currency, commodity, and inflation markets.  In addition to San Francisco, JCRA has offices in London, New York, Edinburgh, Manchester and Leeds.
