Brian Phelan

My job is to lead the Client Services Delivery team across North American from JCRA’s New York office. This means I focus on structuring and pricing derivatives across the PPP, Project Finance, Private Equity, and Real Estate sectors. I advise clients during trade execution on both auction and negotiated trades, assist with ISDA and credit spread negotiations, KYC and Dodd Frank requirements pre-trade and, finally, assist with valuations, hedge accounting and journal entries post-trade. I mainly cover interest rate and FX trades but have also assisted on power and inflation transactions. I am also a member of the IT Strategy group at JCRA.

I joined JCRA in 2011, initially on the property desk in the London office. Along with advising property clients, I worked on several structured finance and dispute resolution mandates. Also, as a developer I created or extended several of the valuations platforms for JCRA. In 2015, I relocated with my family to New York.

I hold a BSc in Mathematical Sciences from Dublin City University, an MSc in Quantitative Finance from The Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business, University College Dublin, and an MPhil in Computer Science from the City University of New York, Graduate Center. After completing my MSc I joined the Volatility Arbitrage desk at Concordia Advisors in Bermuda and later New York, where I developed systems and models for trading, back-testing and risk management, including an automated hedging system for gamma scalping across several international markets.
