Managing Director and Head of G10 Rates Sales for Asia, Citibank
Julia Raiskin is a Managing Director and Head of G10 Rates Sales for Asia Pacific at Citi. Since 2009 Julia has been responsible for the distribution of global fixed income products (including cash and derivatives) to Asian Institutional investors, including Central Banks, Sovereign Wealth Funds, Banks, Asset Managers, Insurance Companies and Leveraged Accounts.
Julia joined Citi in Singapore in 2007 to run Retail Structured Products Sales. In that role, she was responsible for the development and distribution of Citi’s cash bonds, OTC derivatives, structured noted and funds to both internal (Citi Private Bank and Consumer Bank) and external clients throughout Asia. While the initial mandate was for fixed income products only, it eventually expanded to Equity and Equity linked offerings as well. In that role, Julia interacted very closely with various regulators and channels of distribution throughout Asia – as the individual investment product market tends to be very heavily regulated – and oversaw the evolution of the market in the immediate aftermath of the Lehman crisis
Prior to moving to Asia with Citi, she spent 8 years in London in a variety of sales and structuring roles. She ran European Corporate FX Sales for JP Morgan. She also worked in derivatives solutions at Morgan Stanley and FX structuring at Lehman Brothers, where she began her banking career.
Julia holds a doctorate in Law from Oxford University, where she was a Rhodes Scholar and a Bachelor’s Degree (with the highest honors) from Harvard University. Julia was born in Moscow, Russia and moved with her family to the US in 1990. She currently lives in Singapore with her husband and three children.
