Ex-Deutsche Bank Head of Index Strategies Group strengthens Finvex Group's fixed income expertise
John Butler has 17 years experience in the global financial industry, having worked for European and US investment banks in London, New York and Germany.
"John is a financial investments expert with the right mix of expertise for Finvex Group" says Benedict Peeters. "He complements our existing suite of services thanks to his senior roles in fixed income held at Deutsche Bank and Lehman Brothers in the past" adds Joakim Darras.
He is also a founder and the Managing Partner of Amphora Capital, a financial research, product development and consulting firm. Prior to founding Amphora Capital he was Managing Director and Head of the Index Strategies Group at Deutsche Bank in London, where he was responsible for the development and marketing of proprietary, index-based quantitative strategies for global interest rate markets. Prior to joining DB in 2007, John was Managing Director and Head of European Interest Rate Strategy at Lehman Brothers in London, where he and his team were voted #1 in the Institutional Investor research survey.
John Butler summarises: "Rather than attempt to generate highly-leveraged, risky returns in an uncertain environment in which assets in general are difficult to value, my approach is focused on regime-specific diversification. Finvex Group is pioneering in the field of risk mitigation, and we share the same view that many safe and normally uncorrelated investments are no longer as defensive or diversified in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. I look forward to developing such investment concepts across all asset classes with my partners in Finvex Group".
