Another former banking MD reappeared in crypto – eFinancialCareers

by Sarah Butcher 1 minutes ago
After a long career in an investment bank, the new preferred alternative isn’t a hedge fund, Citadel Securities, or the country club, it’s increasingly turning out to be a new and senior position in crypto. 
The latest former ex-banking managing director to make the move is Carlos Xirau, a former managing director and head of LATAM corporate and public sector sales and structuring at Citigroup. 
Xirau left Citi’s New York office after a decade last September and after a fallow period for personal projects he’s just resurfaced as chief executive of Uniera, a crypto exchange and asset manager in Brazil.
As we reported earlier this week, Bankole Omodunbi a former Credit Suisse MD in systematic trading, has also resurfaced as CEO of a crypto company after some time at home. It’s not that banking jobs are uninteresting, said Bankole, it’s just that the pace of innovation in crypto is so much faster that many people in traditional finance are missing out.
