FX Sales to US Corporates

Our client is a leading international investment bank, 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 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 continue their growth by making a strategic investment hire to take the business to the next level. The successful person will currently be working at a recognised investment bank covering US corporate clients. The level of the individual is relatively open but with a preference for a Vice President level person with at least 6 years' experience within FX sales to US corporates.

In this role the successful candidate will focus on marketing FX products to US corporate clients and be part of a larger Sales team which markets a range of different products including Rates and Commodities. The person will have a strong client origination skills and ablility to work with sales and structuring colleagues to identify solutions, and execute deals with the trading business. Although their predominant product specialisation should be FX, the person will be expected to have a good understanding of other financial products and will be able to successfully back up other colleagues on the desk.

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 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.
