ITFA YOUNG PROFESSIONAL NETWORK (YPN) - Introducing Philipp Moulas (UniCredit Bank AG); Member of the ITFA YPN

Philipp Moulas has been working in the Trade Risk Management department at UniCredit Bank AG since 2011. In his role Philipp is responsible for UniCredit’s secondary market activities outside Germany, i.e. syndication of trade related risk on the one hand and purchases of FI and Corporate-Risks on the other hand. In his daily work he deals mainly with institutional clients.

Philipp is based in Munich and joined UniCredit with an International Graduate Program in Corporate & Investment Banking where he worked in various departments such as Structured Solutions Group, and Loan Syndication based in London.

Philipp holds a BA in International Business and Management from FH Kufstein and is an Alumni of the Investment and Finance Research Association (IFRA) from Korea University.

''Being a member of the ITFA Young Professional Network is a great opportunity. There are different networking events and interactions with other young professionals throughout the industry. For example, we launched different roundtable discussions together with GTR to give young professionals a greater voice and promote our ideas.

From a personal point of view, I think that having Chris Hall (an ITFA Board Member) dedicated specifically to this initiative, demonstrates that ITFA believes in the value and success of this initiative.

Following the success of the various ITFA roundtable events organized, and with further exposure through this article, I hope that more and more ITFA members will join this initiative, bringing further young professionals to participate in this network. We aim to create a platform which enables young professionals to exchange ideas, interact and get career advice from more senior individuals in the industry.

Furthermore, additional networking events are crucial and shall follow throughout the year. In my opinion, it is important that we cooperate with the Regional Committees on this initiative, and more importantly we should focus on regions where the network is already strong with the presence of many young talents. Moreover, we will also aim to roll out such events to other regions to ensure that we reach out to even more talent. Of course, the network itself has to be international and shall include all regions.

In addition to the above mentioned actions, ITFA is planning to foster cooperation with universities in order to attract more talent to our industry.

As already highlighted in previous ITFA newsletters, your input will be vital for the success of this initiative, and your support will be highly appreciated. If you would like to volunteer as a mentor, or would like to participate as a young professional, Chris Hall, Johanna Wissing and myself would be delighted to hear from you.''
