Brad has over 25 years of FX trading experience. Prior to setting up T4T in 2009, Brad worked for Citibank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Toronto Dominion Bank. He was Chief FX Dealer of some of the biggest FX teams in Sydney, London & New York. He has also worked extensively through Asia in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Vietnam.
Brad graduated from Sydney University in 1989 and then took up a sporting scholarship (Rugby) at University College Dublin in Ireland the same year. It coincided with the Rugby World Cup in Ireland so he thought there’s no better way to watch the tournament then do it for free. Plus he had a load of mates in the Australian team so it was a great opportunity to hang out with the touring team.
When he returned to Sydney he got a job with Citibank in Sydney on the FX trading desk. Little did he know at the time that this would be his life long career. He didn’t know much at the start but it’s like any apprenticeship, you get your hands dirty, you learn the ropes from veterans and you simply learn on the job. Brad ended up spending the next 18 years globe hopping between Sydney, London and New York working for Citibank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Toronto Dominion Bank.
Brad spent the first few years taking in all the good traits from the best traders and learning not what to do from the less capable guys. After a couple of years he was promoted to a senior dealer status and went about making a name for himself. Still all the while trying to fine tune his skills: technically and fundamentally. At this stage Brad was grateful he had an economic degree as it did come in handy the deeper he got into the fundamentals.
After a few more years Brad was promoted to Chief FX Dealer and in charge of 20 plus traders. This is where things really got wild whilst managing a team being entertained five nights a week. Brad mentioned
"The challenge of being in charge is you have less time for trading yourself as you’re constantly managing the ego maniacs in the team – which is all of them (me included)".
The one thing Brad that points to Brad's success and longevity as a trader in the banks was my willingness to learn every day. He always kept an open mind that he could always learn more and perform better. That knowledge can come from a graduate trainee or one of the other senior traders. So you’re constantly refining your skills and adapting to the market. This keeps you striving and motivated to keep doing what you’re doing in any field for that matter.
