Front office jobs at investment banks are increasingly being taken over by intelligent machines. Many current front office employees are worried about being displaced by artificial intelligence, and their fears are not unfounded. Huy Nguyen Trieu, former head of macro structuring at Citigroup, has a positive message for traders who risk being replaced by automation: become a data facilitator.
Huy Nguyen Trieu left Citi in 2016. After 13 years in financial engineering at SocGen and RBS, before becoming an Managing Director and head of macro structuring at Citi, he has shifted his focus to acting as a thought leader in the fintech space. Currently a fintech fellow at London’s Imperial College and mentor at fintech accelerator, Level 39, Nguyen Trieu is both fintech guru and entrepreneur. And his current focus is centered on the issue of long term employability in investment banks.
