FX Sales to US Corporates

Our client is a leading international investment bank, headquartered in Europe, with a strong presence in corporate coverage in FX, Rates and Commodities. They have a strong balance sheet and lend to a large number of corporates globally. Transaction types range from vanilla hedging to complex strategic trade ideas, event driven transactions and FX & Rates deals on the back of structured and leverage finance.

The bank has built a successful and profitable presence covering US corporates and would now like to make an additional strategic investment hire to take the business to the next level. The successful person will currently be working at a recognised investment bank covering corporate clients. The level of the individual is relatively open but with a preference for a Director level person with at least 10 years' experience in Rates sales to US Corporates. The person will be a recognised name in the market and have good relationships with Treasurers & FDs across a wide range of US corporates, both large and mid-cap. Experience with financial sponsors is a distinct advantage. The candidate's current client base is not expected to be transportable and expectations on revenue will be adjusted and reasonable, however the person will be expected to have a strong reputation with corporate clients.

The role will be a blend of fixed income coverage, vanilla and structured products, flow business and proactive strategic trades. The person will have a strong understanding of the risk advisory life cycle, from client origination to problem identification, working with sales & structuring colleagues to identify solutions, through to deal execution with the trading business. Although their predominant product specialisation should be interest rates, the person will be expected to have a good understanding of FX products and will be able to back up colleagues on the desk.

The individual will have a strong team ethic and have experience of working as part of a collegiate business. The person will also be used to working in partnership with all divisions of the bank from HR, risk management, compliance, middle office and operations. A fluent second European language would be desirable but not essential.
