Oliver Jerome is the founder, and head of European foreign exchange product is the job. That being said, he’s not exactly the Zuckerberg/Gates dropout type.

Jerome was at Morgan Stanley in London for 6 years, most recently as an MD and head of the bank’s Foreign Exchange (FX) & emerging markets sales and trading offering in EMEA. He left to found BestX, a fintech that defines FX & fixed income Transaction Cost Analysis (TCA).

Jerome will report to Deutsche Bank’s Sameen Farooqi, its relatively newly appointed global co-head of FX, and Panos Stergiou, its relatively newly appointed global head of institutional client group.
