He was also the Global Basel III coordinator for all modeling efforts needed to satisfy the new regulatory risk requirements imposed on banks. Previously, he was a quantitative analyst at Barclays Capital, a vice president at Credit Suisse, and a senior vice president at HSBC. His educational background is in theoretical physics where he studied at Stony Brook University and the University of Chicago.

Derivatives Structurer/Quantitative Analyst

Professor Chatterjee grew up in Calgary, the largest city in the province of Alberta, Canada. As a seventh grader, he learned to play the tenor saxophone and was determined to forge a career in jazz. Yet, like his physicist father, he decided to pursue the study of physics. He went on to earn a Ph.D. in theoretical physics at Stony Brook University. Though he veered away from a career in music, he continues to play the tenor sax as a semi-pro. Every summer, he performs a few concerts with a small band at Woodbury Commons in Central Valley, NY. Professor Chatterjee’s career in banking happened serendipitously. At the time of his graduation from the University of Chicago, the Cold War had ending and opportunities for newly minted physicists shrunk drastically. Wall Street firms were recruiting and Professor Chatterjee was offered a position at Barclays Capital as a derivatives structurer/quantitative analyst in New York City. Thus began his career trajectory, as he later became a vice president at Credit Suisse and a senior vice president at HSBC. Prior to returning to academia, he was Director of the Multi-Asset Hybrid Derivatives Quantitative Research group at Citigroup in New York. He was also the Global Basel III coordinator for all modeling efforts needed to satisfy the new regulatory risk requirements imposed on banks.
