Juan Ferrer studied mathematics at the University of the Balearic Islands. After finishing this degree, Juan moved to Paris to complete his studies in applied mathematics at the University Pierre et Marie Curie, where he obtained a master’s degree in probability and finance. After an internship at BRED in “modeling for derivatives pricing”, he moved to Madrid to join the fund derivatives desk at BBVA. Two years later, he transferred to the equity derivatives desk where he spent twelve years as a flow trader covering several single stocks sectors. Looking to develop new skills, in January 2021 the global research team gave him the opportunity to join the team to help the equity team with the task of research for trading strategies to reinforce the flow equity business in its aim to produce content to engage BBVA’s clients. This is his current role in the organization.
