Jonny has spent the past 18 years working for major banking institutions, advising organisations on foreign exchange (FX) and Interest Rate (IR) risk management issues.
He is a specialist in all FX products and how they should be applied in the risk management process and is well connected across the entire FX community – within both the banking and broking worlds.
From 2011 to 2019 Jonny was a senior manager at UBS Investment Bank with responsibility for advising clients on all matters relating to foreign exchange and treasury risk management. Clients were mostly corporates and private equity firms looking to understand how FX impacted on their business and how to hedge various types of exposures.
Jonny also established the Event Driven FX Team at UBS, which specialised in the management of FX risk that is inherent in Mergers and Acquisitions, and Equity Capital Market transactions.
From 2004 – 2011 Jonny was a Director at Barclays Capital in the Risk Solutions Group. He managed a team of FX and Interest Rate consultants covering SME’s, AIM/FTSE 250 listed and large private companies. The team advised on day-to-day risk management issues as well as designing and implementing bespoke hedging policies.
Prior to this, Jonny spent time at Goldman Sachs and Credit Agricole.
Jonny is an active father of 3 young children, which doesn’t leave a great deal of time for other pursuits! He enjoys most sports; in particular cycling, football, scuba diving, tennis and skiing. He also volunteers at a local homeless shelter. He loves exploring new cultures, and has done so extensively, including traipsing various young children around the Far East, Australia and the Americas. In earlier times he spent 2 years living abroad in South America and in the Middle East.
