Gary Dunn started out life as a statistician at the Bank of England in 1977 and after a 16-year career there ended up as a senior manager in UK foreign currency reserve management with responsibility for interest rate risk strategy and liquidity management. To aid liquidity management Gary created an internal market for funding between fixed income portfolio managers and the FX desks.
Gary ventured into the private sector where he spent a further 10 years as a proprietary trader. Here he used his past experience to develop trading tools.
Gary joined the FSA in 2005 where his main responsibility was reviewing regulatory market risk models (CAD models including VaR and IRC). Whilst at FSA Gary conducted a thematic review of the management of interest rate risk in the banking book (IRRBB) across London based banks. He also attended the AIG/TBG, a BCBS working group responsible for technical design of proposed market risk regulatory capital rules. Gary contributed to the design and calibration of IRC for Basel 2.5 and also wrote internal working papers on VaR, ES and other spectral risk measures that contributed to a review of the academic literature on market risk measures, the first in a long series of FRTB papers from BCBS and industry.
From 2010, as a senior manager at HSBC, Gary participated in many dialogues between industry and regulators covering topics such as FRTB, central clearing, margining, liquidity risk and IRRBB (interest rate risk in the banking book), as well as working on internal projects such as stress testing, IRC development, regulatory interactions and CRD IV submissions. Finally, before moving into consultancy and training, Gary took on an MD role at Morgan Stanley where he was head of risk analytics for the EMEA region.
Now Gary works as a consultant and trainer but also enjoys trading on personal account!
