We believe the greatest investment we make is in our people. Get to know the men and women who make BNY Mellon a world-class financial institution. Meet Nicholas, Global Head of OTC Valuation, Global Derivatives – Security Operations.
Each day, our team values over 60,000 derivatives using a variety of data sources and mathematical models. Since derivatives are not traded on an exchange, like a stock for instance, their values are not readily apparent and known. It’s through the work of my team and I that investors come to know the value of derivatives.
I spend much of my day working with clients – both existing and potential – walking them through our quantitative & operational processes, explaining how we arrived at a particular valuation, and pitching new business. I also spend a considerable amount of time with my team around the globe, making sure we’re all heading in the same direction strategically, and offering my support where necessary.
“Five years after joining BNY Mellon, I was asked to go to Europe and present a large piece of business to a potential client. It resulted in a big business win and an even bigger personal career win.”Nicholas, Global Head of OTC Valuation, Global Derivatives – Security Operations
I see myself continuing in the derivatives space five years from now. I also see myself completing my dual master’s degree in MBA Finance and Masters in Quantitative Finance at Northeastern University. By that time, I would also like to be at a more senior level and have more responsibility, and possibly even a move to our Asset Management side of BNY Mellon.
