Market Risk Management

What’s your role at Barrenjoey?

I joined Barrenjoey in July 2020, and I’m responsible for market and liquidity risk management in Barrenjoey. I thoroughly enjoy being part of the business establishment and growth.

What did you do before joining Barrenjoey?

I have a quantitative background with a degree in Actuarial Science and Masters in Applied Finance. I am a bit of jack-of-all-trades after 10+ years of experience in market, credit and operational risk, and regulatory capital, with a breadth of experience covering foreign exchange, fixed income, equities and derivative businesses.

What do you do when you’re not at work?

Things I do to get my mind off markets, liquidity or risk is immersing myself in various forms of art, sports, and investments, and never miss a day without yoga and an invigorating cold shower.
