Akshay Chinchalkar, CMT, EPAT

Akshay Chinchalkar, CMT, EPAT is a Cross Asset Editor at Bloomberg. In his current role, he works very closely with both the South Asia and the global Editorial teams in publishing cross market content available to more than 300K terminal and non-terminal subscribers.

Akshay has over 16 years of experience in derivatives trading and technical/quantitative research, with roles spanning sellside firms and the last 12 years at Bloomberg. He started his career as a commodity futures trader and graduated to trading equity derivatives on a proprietary desk before heading derivatives research at one of the largest domestic sellside firms.

Akshay’s Bloomberg career began in 2009 as a Sales Specialist where he was assigned the responsibility of managing large sellside accounts and doubling up as a data visualization/technical research specialist. A year down, Akshay became the Market Specialist for Technical Research, with coverage spanning the largest sellsides, buyside institutions and central banks spread over South Asia, the Middle East and parts of South East Asia. In this assignment, he was able to collaborate with internal stakeholders in expanding the Bloomberg franchise within the prospect community and entrenching the existing terminal community by moving the needle further away from our closest competitors.

After spending 8 years as a Market Specialist, Akshay joined the Workflow Specialists team, where he was responsible for Corporate workflows. In this role, Akshay assumed responsibility for assisting small, midsize and large corporations in South Asia enhance their existing workflows using Bloomberg’s Core terminal and non-terminal, ancillary suite of solutions. These solutions and support spanned across both Treasury and Non-Treasury areas.

With FX execution becoming a core strategy for Bloomberg in 2020, Akshay moved to the Electronic Trading Specialists group, with an objective of demonstrating to both liquidity takers and makers that execution efficiencies can be achieved via Bloomberg’s suite of FX execution solutions. This was a very successful stint, with the number of takers and makers on Bloomberg and executed volumes increasing – essentially facilitating the expansion of the community.

Effective July ’21, with his new role within the Bloomberg Editorial world, Akshay’s day job pivots around closely monitoring market undercurrents across the Rates, Equities, Commodities, Crypto, Credit and FX worlds to generate insights based on visualization techniques and quant powered data analysis.

Akshay is an MSc in Accounting and Finance from the London School of Economics and Political Science, a CMT Charterholder, Mumbai Chapter Chair and Global Board Member of the CMT Association and an FRM L2 candidate.
