What attracted you to Octaura?

Change in Institutional Finance oftentimes is glacial in comparison to other industries, but once in a while there comes along an idea that progresses the industry by a few decades, figuratively speaking. Octaura is ushering in a significant leap for the Loan & CLO markets, and that has generated tremendous excitement amongst market participants. I don’t think I would have been able to live with myself had I passed on the opportunity to lead one of the most important industry transformations of my professional generation.
