MBA from INSEAD. Worked for GS in London under the head of prop/structured products (guy with hyphenated name, can't recall).
Not Siva-Jothy, perchance?

Thank you very much. I don't think this trader's deeds have been documented yet in any trading book. But it is definitely one of the best I have heard.

No, jewish name. Also from INSEAD. The German worked for the guy with the hyphenated name. Hyphen guy left GS after making $80MM one year (more than Blankfein earned).

Actually, I briefly looked at this few months ago, as a way to increase leverage on one of my set-ups, but decided to keep my operation simple as of now. Will surely take a re-look sometime in future.

Equity and FX vol in OTC exotic options.
Out of interest, is it straightforward to trade OTC exotics with a small account?
