I work at the Structured Finance Trading and Syndication desk at of a large European Bank in NY. I Joined the Bank in May 2010 following a career in public service in Mexico; as an elected congressman I was appointed to a variety of roles including the Federal Budget and Treasury Committees. I hold a BA degree in Economics from Universidad Iberoamericana (Mexico) and an MBA degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (US). My focus is mostly on debt products, with particular interest in special/distressed debt situations. I trade for fun, on a medium term buy and hold basis --the only way I've done well. I follow a value investing approach, and sincerely hope you find my contributions valuable and educational.
