Distributed Capital Group (DCG) is led by Zac Pessin, focusing on facilitating a better Globalization through better, more resolved financial design. This includes applied work on specific transactions; product and service design, regulation & governance, scalability & systemic issues, and risk management & transfer. Fundamental to this focus is the ability and interest in the architecting—and often amelioration of—weak or vulnerable economic systems and economies. DCG is pioneering in its ability and willingness to confront the enormous and multidisciplinary complexity present in the global distribution of client operations, cash flows, capital structures, tax implications, financing strategies, and the risks that accompany all of these things. Demand for our capabilities spans the range of SMEs to MNCs, governments, NGOs, pensions, banks, insurance companies, and others. DCG's offerings and position in frontier markets stand on this ability to synthesize new best practices for areas of finance that are currently underdeveloped, particularly as they relate to poor and developing countries and economies.

Earlier, Zac worked in JPMorgan’s Capital Structure Advisory Solutions (CSAS) group, where he was responsible for designing sophisticated bespoke solutions of the type mentioned above, albeit for select corporate and sovereign clients. Prior to that he worked for JPM's Global Head of Operational Risk as part of the three-person team managing the firm's $7 billion Operational Risk Capital model, a practice focused on defending the firm from extreme or "fat-tail" risks. At the time, JPM’s model and OpRisk program was the most sophisticated in the world, and the group won numerous awards including RiskMagazine's top award two years in a row. Zac worked closely with senior members of the firm’s Quantitative Research & Development group during this time, and regularly prepared material for CFOs and other senior executives across the six global businesses of the firm.
