Over 23 years of experience in Financial Markets working in the top Spanish Financial Institutions; namely BBVA and, previously, Banco Santander. After completing PhD in Maths and Master Degree in Finance (CEMFI), I started trading Equity Derivatives in Argentaria Bolsa. Nearly two years later I joined Banco Santander as a Subdirector of Market Risk where we worked hard developing a new market risk system. After two years I moved to the trading floor where I traded FX, Interest Rates and Equity Derivatives as a senior trader. In 2001, I joined BBVA where I have developed the bulk of my professional career that started trading derivatives and developed exotics derivatives  in all the assets classes, including commodities. I got a position as a Global Head of New Products and Director of the bank, that was upgraded to a Corporate Director in 2009 with responsability of all the value chain of the Interest Rates product (Trading, Sales, Structuring and Research). Since then, I have tried to expand BBVA interest rates product capabilities across all geographic regions where we were present: Europe, Latam, USA and Asia. Last period, big part of time was dedicated to the implementation of CVA and FVA, besides unable all our trading thoroughout the major electronic platforms. Last two years I was member of the Global Markets Management Committee. Additionaly,  I was geographical responsible for Asia during 2013 and 2014, making it compatible with my other aforementioned responsability.
In February 2016, I left BBVA to be dedicated to trade my own portfolio and in September I joined CUNEF as a professor of its Posgraduate Studies.

Áreas de Interés

My primary area of interés and professional development has been derivatives (valuation and trading) as it combines together my technical background with financial market practise. The career path has been mostly developed in trading af all asset classes: Predominant Fixed Income but also Equity, Foreign Exchange even Commodities.

The progress in my career throughout different trading positions unleashed determinant interest by global macroeconomy with a special emphasis in monetary policy, emerging markets and financial sector as a primary areas. Lately, Regulation was a mandatory area to be focus on. 

In spite to my evolucion to finance I cannot skip my latent interest by  Mathematics, although with the time I have become particulartly interested in its applications to Economy and Finance

As a result of my protracted global role in BBVA, I have developed a strong international  interest starting by International Finance but extended to other fields like to look at Spanish enterprises increasing international exposure, education, supranational public institutions and, in general,  global and international educational terms that cuold be useful adopting in our domestic society.
