Executive Interviews

Aaron Howell, Managing Director, Head of Oil & Gas, Asia, Rothschild
We have always taken a long-term view of our client needs; evolving their strategy and enabling its execution, we do not focus on quarterly or annual deal related metrics. As the macro-environment has moved, we have moved with it, however our core focus of impartially advising our clients over the long-term has not changed.
Nicolas Tardieu, Managing Director, Oil & Gas, Scotiabank
Increased volatility in crude oil price, slower oil demand growth, lesser risk appetite from capital provider for the sector.
Societe Generale’s Reserve Based Finance business is now firmly established in the Asia Pacific region. My target for the next year or two is to build on the success of 2015 and develop a high quality and sustainable loan portfolio in this region. Reserve Based Finance is not a solution that suits every E&P company, but I feel there is more to be done to promote wider usage of this form of financing.
Most companies will develop strategies that will enable them to adapt to the new oil price environment that we find ourselves in.
