Paul Wade, CAIA, Advisory Committee

Senior Portfolio Manager, Dexia

Paul Started his career as a pricing analyst for OTC derivatives in the fund administration industry. This goal of the team was to aid the transparency of NAV generation by independently modelling derivative valuations. He then went on to work in investment banking as part of the Market Risk department, focusing on hedging structured interest rate and credit products. In mid 2008, just before the financial crisis, Paul moved to London to take up a role as a CDS & credit trader, focusing on emerging market and investment grade products. As the crisis took it’s toll on CDS volumes, his role moved more towards balance sheet management and he returned to Dublin in 2011 to take up a portfolio management role with Dexia. His role involves day to day management of the fixed income portfolio, with a current focus on infrastructure and inflation products.
