Engineer by training, Xavier graduated (BS) from ENSEM, a leading French electrical engineering school. He subsequently achieved a Master Degree in International Finance at HEC in Paris, ranked #1 business school in France.
He began his financial career in 1994 at Caisse des Depots et Consignations, a state-owned French Bank as an Equity Derivative trader in the Paris office. Looking for international exposure, he went to Commerzbank, a German Bank, for whom he managed a portfolio of equity derivative products both in Frankfurt, Germany and London, England. Xavier rapidly made a name in the booming derivatives industry and was approached by another German bank, DrKW (Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein) where he served as Director in London, running the Index derivatives trading book.
In 2004, DrKW assigned Xavier in NYC and asked him to run its US Equity Derivatives Trading franchise. During the turmoil following the collapse of Lehman Brothers, Xavier saw an opportunity and decided to switch to the equity derivatives brokerage business. Leveraging on his 14 year long experience as a trader, his entrepreneurial spirit and countless relationships in the derivatives space, he first joined Louis Capital Markets and more recently Sunrise Brokers where he acted as derivative sales person.
While working for Sunrise Brokers, Xavier Guery not only attended night classes, seminars and week-end trainings in Real Estate but he also launched XNV Properties, LLC.
