Paul Young is one of the rare breed of US bankers to make a successful transition into the intensively competitive European bond market.

The South African born, French educated, US citizen admits that his transfer to London from New York to head up Citigroup's syndicate desk was "an eye- opener".

However his multicultural background and language proficiency meant he was best equipped for the challenge.

Although he was born in South Africa, he left at the age of 13 for Paris where he stayed until finishing his studies. In 1982, after gaining his Baccalaureate, he moved to the US and enrolled at the University of Texas.

Four years later Young began his banking career on the financial analyst programme at Salomon Brothers in New York. And after a spell in the corporate finance department and then capital markets, Young joined the fixed income syndicate desk in 1992.

With nearly 10 years of syndicate experience to his credit, Young arrived in London the week before September 11, 2001. He then had to lead the syndicate team through what he describes as some of the worst times the market has ever experienced.

Young is one of the most respected syndicate heads in the market and under his leadership Citigroup continues to offer unsurpassed deal execution.

In his spare time, he tries to spend as much time as possible with his wife and two children.

He is a keen tennis player and ocean swimmer. Given the chance he would like to sort through 28 years of family photos and in the future hopes to work with underprivileged children.
