Andrew Kinsey

Andrew has over 25 years’ experience in financial markets both for international and local (South African) institutions. He was a trader and senior manager in the derivatives and cash-trading environment, and worked as a Derivatives Trader at Nedcor, Standard Bank and Corpcapital Bank, trading foreign exchange, fixed income and equity assets. He was head of the ABN AMRO South Africa Money Market and Foreign Exchange unit. From 2008 to 2014 he was Head of Market and Trading Risk at the Purple Capital Group. This set the basis for the next period as he moved into risk management for hedge funds and in the online trading environment. This allowed him to build on his skills as a market trader to construct risk management systems, which illuminated granular market exposures as well as a communication tool for the business executives. At the same time he began to spend an increasing amount of time training and lecturing both graduates and experienced staff in market products and economics.
