My work involves building capacities at organizations for all facets of free market trading operations. I have worked on early market situations for semi-government organizations, private entities, international banking groups, brokers and a market-oriented NGO.

I author papers to be submitted for financing, grants or seed investing. I have great deal of experience in many financial organizations from the back office to the managing director, with a good feeling for the many roles that exist and the driving forces behind individuals that can be cultivated and mentored.

I have worked in New York, Sydney, Melbourne, and later in Prague, Kiev, Athens, Belgrade and Vienna. I have opened profitable and untapped business lines in the early Asian FX markets, brokered financial futures in the largest exchanges worldwide, dealt emerging market equities in a number of nascent Eastern European markets in the 90's, marketed distressed bonds to repay Milosevic's stolen millions of currency, set up one of Eastern Europe’s first carbon brokerage desks, sought financing for an early Joint Implementation ERU fund, and negotiated EFET contracts that introduced an unknown natural gas producer that now trades with the biggest traders in Central Europe.

Currently I am open for relationship building projects, startups and sales consulting roles where my skills and network can be utilised. I especially enjoy assisting local firms to package themselves better to reach western partners, clients and/or counterparties. On the following pages you can learn about my experience in various positions. In addition, I offer a lecture series on financial markets products, operations and behaviour of the participants, with the aim of educating middle managers.

If you wish to open a dialogue about these markets or employ me as a consultant, please contact me. Dan(at)danielbutler.eu +420 606 213 523
