Crypto arbitrage hedge fund Argentium appoints Head of Trading

Sophia Chelli Herman has joined Argentium as a Principal and Head of Trading. Herman has more than 25 years’ experience in financial markets.

 

She started her career at BNP in Paris, working in the research and development team on options modeling and trading management software for the Fixed Income desk. She then moved to London where she worked for NatWest, Bankers Trust and then JPMorgan on the Fixed Income swaps desk. In 2000, she transferred to JPMorgan Tokyo where she was responsible for the exotic equity derivatives trading team.  

More recently, Herman moved with her family to New York where she has been following the macroeconomic environment closely, and actively trading a multi-asset portfolio. Herman is an engineering graduate of Ecole Polytechnique de Paris.  

Paul Frost-Smith, CEO of Argentium, comments:  “I am so pleased Sophia has decided to join us after our time at JPMorgan in Tokyo together. Sophia’s background in fixed income and exotic derivatives trading will be invaluable as we develop ever more sophisticated strategies to capture volatility in this developing market, ensuring we can deploy assets in the most effective way and are able to adapt to changing market conditions.”
