Janos 2 small

My full name is Janos Maria Demian Renz-Hotz; I am a Swiss citizen born on the 9th of April 1982 in Lugano, Switzerland.

I am fluent in both writing and speech in English, Italian, German and French.

I lived for most of my life in Italy, while attending the German Language Section of the European School of Varese. I moved to the United Kingdom in the year 2000 to further my studies at Sunderland University with a BA/BSc (Joint Honours) in Business and Computing.

During the course of my studies, I participated in an exchange program that brought me to Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia for one semester. This was followed by a one year work placement (internship) in Sydney with the internationally renowned Lazard Asset Management.

I subsequently moved to London and completed a MSc in Management at CASS Business School. After a year long stint in Investment Banking with Citigroup, I was recruited by the IG Group as a Flow Trader and Account Executive and lately as their European Business Manager. Please see my CV below for a more detailed view on my Roles at IG.

Currently I am in the USA providing consulting services for small to medium sized funds on the implementation of DMA and Algo strategies. My expertise is primarily focused on FIX and CEP

My Elevator pitch, or why to hire me in 60 words, gives a quick idea about who I am:

My drive to succeed stems from my passion towards knowledge and change. I understand, and effectively channel, the balance between analysis and action. I value integrity and diversity, and I believe in mutual respect of people and ideas. My high impact leadership is based on example, while always remembering that the boat is steered from the back and not the front.
