In this role he specialized in FX Spot, forwards, vanilla options, exotics and precious metals. Moreover he was also responsible for overseeing daily control and risk mitigating activities of the FX prime brokerage team on a daily basis.
Prior to joining Barclays in April, Mr. Weiss also worked at several other investment institutions and banks, including CM-CIC Securities, Goldman Sachs, Knock Capital Markets, and FXDD, among others, dating back to 2008, according to information made public from his Linkedin profile.
Back in August 2014, Societe Generale closed its G-10 forex-trading desk in London, subsequently packing up shop and moving its operations to Paris as part of an initiative to reorganize its forex business and partner with the brokerage Newedge.
