After receiving his bachelor's degree from Duke University and studying Mandarin at Nanjing University, Louis-Vincent joined the French Army where he served as a second lieutenant in a mountain infantry battalion. After a couple of years, Louis-Vincent left the army and joined Paribas Capital Markets where he worked as a financial analyst first in Paris, then in Hong Kong. Louis-Vincent left Paribas in 1999 to launch GaveKal Research with Charles and Anatole in London. In 2002, Louis-Vincent left the London office and returned to Hong Kong; the idea at the time was that Asia was set to become an ever more important factor in global growth and that, consequently, GaveKal needed to offer its clients more information, and more ideas, relating to Asia. Louis-Vincent contributes frequently to the research and was the main author of our books Our Brave New World and The End is Not Nigh. Louis-Vincent is CEO of Gavekal and MW GaveKal. Louis-Vincent is a French national. He speaks French and English and is rusty in Spanish and Mandarin. He is married with two sons and one daughter.
