SocGens’ global head of premium Broking visits his castle
Richard DÃ©roulÃ¨de has had a succession of roles during his 16 years at SocGen in Paris and London. After starting out as an equity finance and delta one trader, he went on to become Head of Equity Finance Trading for Europe, Global Head of Securities Financing and finally Global Head of Premier Services. and securities financing.
Having reached this peak of his career, we understand, however, that DÃ©roulÃ¨de is leaving SocGen, and perhaps not voluntarily. Sources say he disappeared from the bank this week.
SocGen declined to comment on DÃ©roulÃ¨de’s exit. Fortunately, after a long career in banking, he has an alternative: he has spent the last four years renovating an old castle in the French woods with his wife and four children. You can see that of DÃ©roulÃ¨de progress here.
SocGen tends to cut jobs at this time of year. Last year he announced 640 job cuts in November. However, the French bank also has a reputation for allowing its employees to take voluntary dismissal and for having paid them to leave on very generous terms.
DÃ©roulÃ¨de is not the only banker to have a French country. Eric Varvel, the former director of Credit Suisse Asset Management, owns an 18th century farmhouse, ‘Le Mas des Poiriers’, with 65 acres in the Provence region of France. DÃ©roulÃ¨de is a little further north: its castle is in the Dordogne.
