With more than 17 years’ experience as a London-based institutional trader, Neerav Vadera (or NV as many refer to him as) is someone who’s very familiar with how trading works. His interest in trading and financial markets begun at a very young age. Neerav’s father was, in many ways, the inspiration as he pushed his son towards the pursuit of mathematics. This would eventually lead Neerav to study financial engineering at one of London’s top business schools.
Applying his passion for mathematics to use in solving financial market problems, Neerav made the logical leap into the trading world. Neerav attended Business School in London, and upon graduating went on to work on the trading floor at Barclays Investment Bank for several years. At the time, BIB held 10% of the global foreign exchange market to the value of £3-5 trillion. It was here Neerav forged connections, working with individuals from around the world while developing his love for financial markets.
During his time at BIB, Neerav was, by his own admission, extremely fortunate to have been responsible for coverage of some of the world’s leading financial markets. These markets encompassed clients, ranging from major central banks and hedge funds to real money funds and more. On top of that, Neerav also covered a broad range of asset classes, including the Foreign Exchange and Interest Rate products.
