Financial Market Consultant
Simon Jaquiss started work in the City of London in 1984, having earned a degree in Economics with Economic History and then spent the period from 1984 to 2006 working for a series of investment banks trading derivatives based on interest rates and foreign exchange.
This included spells in Hong Kong, with Citibank, as Vice-President and banks such as BZW, Paribas, Rabobank, and Investec.
At Rabobank and Investec Simon became increasingly involved in treasury management, that was, running the liquidity and hedging activities of branches of those banks and between 2007 and 2011 he acted as treasury for two banks in the Middle East.
In 2011 upon returning to London, Simon spent a year and a half working at PwC as part of its Risk Advisory Group, providing consultancy services to some of the UK’s largest Wholesale Banks.
From 2012 onwards, having spent nearly 30 years in dealing rooms, Simon set up a business as a banking consultant, initially becoming involved with holding banks to task for mis-selling of complex financial products, and then helping clients gain redress and compensation.
He then began to provide forensic reports, derivatives calculations and valuations to the legal profession and assisting banks in their claims. Since 2013 his activity has included Expert Witness work, and providing training and regulatory guidance to lawyers, accountants, banks and regulators.
