As chief dealer with Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Colin Devereux builds on more than two decades of experience in investments and trading. He entered the field as a graduate of the National University of Ireland, where he earned his bachelor of science with honors in business information systems. Colin Devereux then relocated to New York to join the Swiss Bank Corporation/Union Bank of Switzerland (SBC/UBS) graduate training program, through which he became a trader of G-10 currencies on the Forex (FX) trading platform.
In 2003, Colin Devereux left his associate director position at SBC/UBS to become vice president and senior trader on the FX New York desk of Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH) Foreign Exchange. He served in this role for two years, after which time he transitioned to Citigroup as a deputy chief dealer. He continued to deepen his expertise in G-10 FX trading while also engaging in proprietary trading in other currencies.
Colin Devereux departed Citigroup in 2011 and became chief dealer for BNP Paribas, where he oversaw the risk of the firm's FX desk. He also engaged in single-account proprietary trading, which allowed him to complement directional cash positions with exotic and basic options strategies. He brings this experience to his current position at the G-10 FX desk at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, which he has overseen since 2013.
