Jean-René Giraud, Trackinsight founding CEO
I, and the rest of the team at ETF Express, just wanted to take a moment to offer our condolences to Jean-René’s family and the team at Trackinsight.
Trackinsight is the ETF Express data partner and Jean-René spoke at our European ETF Awards event in March, where many of you will have met up with him. He was articulate and entertaining and spoke to the last second allotted to him, despite a lot of teasing that he was going to share the entire Trackinsight pitch with the audience.
I last saw him in a cabana in Miami, at the NYSE drinks party. He managed to be both furious and funny about his delayed luggage and having to wash his ‘smalls’ in the hand basin in his room. I don’t think I ever had a conversation with him where he didn’t remind me that he was ‘French’ – as if that were ever in doubt.
He will be missed greatly.
