A highly accomplished and respected senior trading executive with ties to Wall Street, Keith Kline has over 25 years of trading experience across a broad range of asset classes including equities, fixed income, futures, options, and commodities.
Having worked at elite derivatives trading firms both in Philadelphia and NYC, Keith has a diverse background that includes serving as an equity options market maker and equity index specialist on the Philadelphia Options Exchange, establishing one of the largest global interest rate derivative desks with The Bank of New York and trading a multi-hundred million dollar long/short portfolio at Susquehanna Investment Group (SIG).
When tasked to head the International Derivatives Desk for SIG early in his career, he was one of the first to trade index arbitrage on the South African exchange, helping the country design and create the new index futures contract. Moving to the U.S. Equity Index desk, one of the largest in the world, he served as senior Index Arbitrage Trader with responsibilities for trading and risk managing dozens of indexes including S&P, XMI, Russell, Value Line, XAU, and all of the tech sector indices.
Making his first move to NYC in 1997, he served as part of a team that started a fixed income trading desk as a joint venture with The Bank of New York. He helped build the start-up operation into one of the largest global interest rate derivatives desks. He was responsible for making markets in a wide array of products including interest rate swaps, caps, and floors, Bermuda Swaptions, and a variety of exotic options.
After being hand-picked by SIG to join the fundamental equity pairs trading desk in 2001, he returned to Philadelphia to manage trading for a multi-hundred million dollar long/short portfolio, specializing in the energy, brokerage, auto, and defense sectors. Five years later, he returned to New York to join a commodity hedge fund, heading the derivatives trading and, ultimately, serving as one of six partners for the firm that was subsequently acquired by The Carlyle Group in 2012.
In 2013, Keith retired from Wall St. to pursue his love of mathematics in which he has both a Bachelor of Science degree from Drexel University and a Master of Science degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of Washington. Combining his love of mathematics and experience in the world of finance, Keith opened the Wall Street Preparatory Academy to teach High School and College students the secrets of trading on Wall Street. The institution is dedicated to bringing the amazing world of mathematics and financial mathematics to young people around the world.
