Bryan C. Keane
Bryan Keane is a Capital Markets Executive and Foreign Exchange Specialist with a diverse background of experience encompassing both the buy and sell sides of the industry across entrepreneurial, boutique and Fortune 500 firms. Bryan started his career in Chicago at Northern Trust Bank in 1989 as a Foreign Exchange position clerk before the age of computerized trading and grew alongside the business as it evolved from a manual process to a heavily systems-oriented and automated process. By embracing technology he helped to create and implement efficiencies that accelerated Northern’s FX revenue and market share. As a Vice President and Senior FX Dealer, Bryan shared responsibility for the competitive pricing and risk management of twenty major currency portfolios as well as managing a team of four traders with combined revenues in excess of $25 million (2004). Leveraging 15 years of progressive sell side experience, Bryan moved on to Rosenthal Collins Group (RCG) where he successfully built and managed a proprietary foreign exchange trading operation. In this role he was responsible for the hiring and mentoring of traders and oversight of the team in a multiple prime broker, high frequency, discretionary trading environment. Most recently a Director at BMO Capital Markets, he was credited with having turned the Asia trading shift into a profitable center within his first year of hire and was recognized for playing a lead role in achieving profitability during even the most tumultuous of market conditions, including the global financial crisis of 2008.
