Co-founder of Fast Track Trade
Agnes Hugot is a fintech entrepreneur. She has more than 20 years of experience in international finance and corporate development.
Since 2015 she has been based in Singapore to launch the development of Fast Track Trade (“FTT”). Her team used connectivity and Distributed Ledger Technology to develop a “wechat like” platform for SMEs domestic and international trade (fasttracktrade.co). Fast Track Trade offers a solid mechanism for B2B transactions in terms of transparency and traceability to increase SMEs financial inclusion across all APAC. FTT is now deploying its “Impact” and “Sustainable” Programs to secure the deployment of financing and international aid to isolated business communities, and to support fragmented supply chains and women-led businesses in accessing financial services.
From 2008 to 2013 Agnes was involved in the European banking sector restructuring in France, then Greece and Spain as a senior director for Alvarez & Marsal. Before the Great Financial Crisis she served as an Investment executive for Landsbanki, Apax Partners and as the Head of Restructuring for Bank of Scotland in France.
She has obtained two regulatory approvals from the French Monetary Authorities (AMF) as a CEO of asset management companies (Private Equity).
She started her career as a financial auditor with Coopers & Lybrand and Ernst & Young in France and in Philadelphia.
Agnès holds a master in management from HEC (1992) and a MBA from INSEAD (2000). She is a Certified Public Accountant in France and in the USA.
