As the son of a diplomat, Andrew spent his childhood in many of the great cities of the world – New York, London, Cairo  and ….. Canberra – before settling in Sydney.

Having completed a Bachelor of Economics from the University of Sydney he was thrown in at the deep end when the 1987 stock market crash hit just two weeks after he joined NAB Treasury wholesale money-market and fixed-interest desks.

Andrew’s clients at NAB included institutions such as AMP, BT Funds Management as well as many other fixed-interest asset managers. He was intimately involved in all money market instruments, bonds, floating rate notes and derivatives such as swaps, floating rate agreements and options.

Andrew has been heavily involved in financial markets education, having been an exam marker and lecturer for SIA/FINSIA/Kaplan since 1994. He has also been a FINSIA Fellow since 2000, and a certified professional with the Finance and Treasury Association (FTA) since 2015.

During this time Andrew also explored a career change and studied Directing at the Australian Film Television and Radio School. After a very enjoyable 10-years directing a wide range of projects Andrew was drawn back to the financial markets.  Using his experience from a diverse 20 years he formed Curve Securities offering a money-market and fixed income service where experienced professions stand shoulder to shoulder with their clients to create opportunities and provide insights that elevate their performance. An early focus on advanced cloud technology enabled Curve to build a term deposit platform second to none. The continual advancement of these proprietary systems, along with great staff and fantastic clients, have facilitated Curve’s growth to administer over $6 Billion in deposits.

Outside of work, Andrew’s interests include new technology, comedy and skiing – although these days he is mostly kept busy by family life with his wife Nicky, a magazine editor, and their two children.

David has dealt in NCDs, bank bills, FRNs, government securities, term deposits and swaps – while also participating in liquidity management, securitisation, portfolio management, interest rate risk and hedging operations.

Director Money Markets

Patrick (aka Paddy) joined Curve in July this year. He brings 30 years of financial markets banking experience in a variety of dealing and FI roles, covering funding, hedging and risk management in interest rate, FX and derivative markets.

In 1990 he began his 30-year career in financial markets in Dublin with the Dutch bank, ABN Amro.  After a trip to Sydney in 1994 for his sister’s wedding he liked what he saw and 3 years later he decided to permanently emigrate to Australia. 6 months backpacking all around Australia convinced him he had made the right decision.

He swapped his backpack for a suit when he re-joined the money market desk at ABN Amro Sydney branch. Between 1997- 2013 he covered a variety of roles, primarily funding the domestic balance sheet in domestic and offshore markets via NCD and ECP. He also managed the FRA book and actively hedged the interest rate risk in the AUD, USD and NZD balance sheets while working for ABN Amro & RBS.

Post RBS, Paddy took on a BD role with the IT-financial company Morgij Analytics, assisting ADI’s management of mortgage portfolio risk and stress testing to ensure compliance with APRA regulations.

Coupling his experience in financial markets and BD he joined the Treasury department of ICBC in 2015 as deputy treasurer, with a focus on working with financial intermediaries (FI’s) for mutual benefit. He broadened the treasury base of its Australian operations, investor base and debt investment portfolio through active relationship management.

Prior to joining the team, he joined a French Mutual bank as Treasurer in 2019 with joint responsibilities for funding, hedging and corporate solutions for its domestic client base.

Paddy has been a member of AFMA since 1999 and was an active member of the short term NTI committee between 2000 & 2012.

Away from work, Paddy has a variety of interests. He has been actively involved with his 3 kids’ soccer teams for 10 years and if daylight permits, he likes to get some fresh air while bushwalking, swimming or spending some time at the golf course.  After sunset he is known to don an apron while listening to music or a history podcast.

He is looking forward to not WFH and spending his first day with the team at the Curve offices!

Catherine has a Bachelor’s degree in Business. After graduating in the UK she made an excellent and life changing decision to follow the sun and move down under. 

She worked for 4 years in Sydney as a recruitment specialist across banking and financial service clients before relocating to Singapore to continue building her expertise across Asia. Whilst in Singapore she transitioned into a Business Management role, supporting multiple functions such as HR, System implementation and Facilities management.

When she’s not in the office Catherine is busy with her two children, walking her dog or trying to fit in some Zen time in a yoga class. Namaste!
