Prior to this, Walsh worked in forex sales at ICAP, a leading markets operator and provider of execution and information services. He worked at the company from September 2008 to January 2010.

According to his LinkedIn, during his first six months at the firm, he rotated between the equity, commodity, forex and interest rate swaps desks. He was then assigned to a new forex sales desk that focused on institutional clients.

In 2007, Walsh kick-started his career at Jefferies in the private client division. This position, which held for just over a year, was his introduction to working in the financial markets and, according to his LinkedIn “confirmed that finance was the career I wanted to pursue.”

Between 2004 until 2008 Walsh attended University College of Dublin. Here he achieved a Bachelor of Business and Legal Studies. In 2010 he also passed the first level of the Chartered Financial Analyst Program.
