Dr Stratis Sarantinos

CEO, Executive Officer, NBG Asset Management M.F.M.C.

Efstratios Sarantinos was elected Chief Executive Officer of NBG Asset Management M.F.M.C. in February 2012. Prior, he worked at the National Bank of Greece as a Proprietary Trader, since 2007, utilizing an algorithmic trend-following CTA Model. The channel breakout approach was applied for price forecasting, tied to market cycles for timing to determine specific entry and exit points. The money management algorithm employed allowed profits to run, while cutting losses short. This was achieved by determining appropriate market adjusted unit sizes and trading in multiple units.
In September 2000 he was elected Chief Executive Officer at the Bank of Cyprus Asset Management Company.
From 1995 to 1998 he worked at Citibank in London as a Proprietary Trader. Between 1993 and 1995 he worked as a Swaps Trader at Barclays Bank, specializing in CHF derivative products. He commenced his career at Merrill Lynch in 1992 as a Swaps Trader in JPY, AUD, CAD and NZD.
E. Sarantinos holds a Ph. D. in Computer Science (1992) with specialization in Artificial Intelligence from Queen Mary College, University of London and a B.Sc. (Hons) in Computer Science (1988) from the University of Cardiff.
