Mr. Gergely most recently served as sole front-office employee in the trading hierarchy in EMEA looking after electronic FX agency products: execution algorithms with transaction cost analysis (TCA), benchmark fixings and resting orders.
He originally joined BAML in 2011 as a quant trader in electronic FX market making. Earlier in his career, he occupied a similar position with BNP Paribas for more than two years where he co-developed high-frequency automated pricing mechanisms and algorithmic-based hedging strategies for the spot FX market-making trading desk.
Before his time at BNP Paribas, Tibor worked for a number of banks in a variety of FX-related roles, mostly in New York.
