A leading entrepreneur and innovator with a passion for sharing his experience and knowledge to help others, Jean-François de Clermont-Tonnerre is sharing thoughts, insights, opinions and articles about business, investing and philanthropy.

Since earning his undergraduate degree in international economics and a master’s degree in banking and finance from the prestigious University of Lausanne, Jean-François has led several highly successful companies in fund management and real estate. He’s particularly proud of his efforts to lead the recovery of a Canadian real estate venture, when he resisted strong calls to sell the development at a loss and instead invested new funds. The result is an excellent return for investors and a thriving new community in British Columbia. He has experience in founding and building companies from nothing into important institutions in Europe, playing a role in major developments and investments.


Jean-François wants to share the ideas and strategies that have helped him to build this company into an example of success and probity.
