Paul Houston is executive director and global head of FX at CME Group. He was appointed to the role in April 2016 after spending over 30 years in the banking sector, primarily in foreign exchange.[1] Houston has overseen CME Group's futures and options business for seven years.

On August 16, 2023, CME Group announced a realignment of its FX futures, options, cash and over-the-counter (OTC) FX businesses into a single unit led by Houston. Under the new structure, Houston will continue in his current role as global head of FX products and will also be responsible for the company's FX derivatives markets as well as its EBS cash markets business.[2] He will lead the combined teams.

EBS was previously headed by Jeff Ward, who is expected to depart the company in September 2023.[3]

Background[edit]

Houston began his career as a graduate trainee for Salomon Brothers. In 1998, he left to join the Royal Bank of Scotland, where he spent 20 years in a variety of roles in FX and fixed income. In 2009 he left RBS to become head of FX prime brokerage at Credit Suisse, where he remained until 2012, when he joined Deutsche Bank's London office. He spent nearly four years at Deutsche Bank as head of FX & fixed income prime brokerage and listed derivatives client solutions in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).[4]


Education and Accreditations[edit]

Houston earned a B.A. in Economics in 1995 from the University of Liverpool. He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and the Association of Corporate Treasurers.
