Dr. Alexis Stenfors

Former Rogue Trader*

Dr. Alexis Stenfors spent 15 years as a foreign exchange and interest rate derivatives trader at HSBC, Citi, Crédit Agricole and Merrill Lynch. In early 2009, he deliberately mismarked his trading positions at Merrill Lynch, which resulted in a five-year prohibition order by the FSA. Labelled as “one of the world’s most infamous rogue traders,” Stenfors returned to academia to write a doctoral thesis with the title “Determining the LIBOR: A Study of Power and Deception” at SOAS (University of London). His research on manipulative and collusive practices has since been published in journals such as the “Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions and Money, Review of Political Economy and Distinktion: Journal of Social Theory.” He is also the author of “Barometer of Fear: An Insider’s Account of Rogue Trading and the Greatest Banking Scandal in History.” Dr. Stenfors is a frequent consultant, guest lecturer and public speaker.
