Regis Caze Profile Image

Regis Caze

Managing Partner
Geneva
Regis Caze began his financial career as a relationship manager for Swiss corporate clients with Banque Paribas (Suisse) SA in Geneva. From 1994 to 1999, he worked within the Bank’s ship finance group, where he developed his interest for shipping. He joined Banque Cantonale Vaudoise (BCV) from 1999 to 2003, participating in the Bank’s efforts to de-risk its existing shipping portfolio, whilst actively building up a new portfolio, as a senior relationship manager. He then moved back (with part of such portfolio) to Paribas in 2004 (re-named BNPP post-merger), before joining Credit Suisse’s Ship Finance team in 2005. He established the Bank’s ship finance desk in Geneva and soon became head of the market area for South Europe, MEA-Turkey and India. During his 12 years at Credit Suisse (of which 1 year spent at the Bank’s headquarters in Zurich), Regis developed a credit portfolio with some of the leading and most reputable shipowners worldwide. His main focus was to align the shipping franchise with the Bank’s private banking business model. At the peak, his team was responsible for more than 40 relationships and the loan volume reached US 2.5 billion. Regis left the Bank in 2017 to co-found Helvetic Marine Capital SA as a Partner, and in 2018 he co-founded ARROW CAPITAL SA where he is a Managing Partner.
