David Campbell, Partner and CEO

David began his career as a money market trainee for Schroders Australia in July 1983.  He moved to the foreign exchange desk later that year as the Australian dollar was floated.  He traded spot $A and $NZ during the often-volatile period of the mid '80s.  He took a position with Chemical Bank (predecessor to JP Morgan Chase and at the time no. 1 in the Euromoney rankings for FX) in London trading $A, $NZ and exotics.  David spent some time at Chemical Frankfurt in 1989 before returning to Australia with Societe Generale.  After spending some time in the Paris office, David became Chief Dealer in Soc Gen Sydney and then moved to Singapore to be regional Head of FX in 1994.  He returned to Australia in 1997 to run Chase Sydney's FX operation and soon thereafter became Managing Director of Sydney and Singapore.  He left Chase in 2000 to do a variety of regional management roles with money broker Prebon Yamane, and went to trade his own funds in 2005 with the goal of setting up his own hedge fund.  David is excited to be starting Hunter Burton Capital with Tony and sees it as the next step in a wide and varied career in the financial markets.

Tony Bradley, Partner and Head of Trading

Tony began his career in July 1987 as a trainee foreign exchange dealer in the corporate treasury of Goodman Fielder, where he gained a solid grounding in spot, forwards, options, and technical analysis.  The inevitable move to a dealing room came in 1990 when he joined Societe Generale spot desk.  Tony noticed a void (for a French bank) in the EMS currencies, and in particular the French franc, and he built a thriving spot business.  With the EMS crises of August 1992 and September 1993 came profitability and global recognition, given that  Soc Gen Sydney was the only price-maker globally for all EMS currencies on a Monday morning for 5 hours, and the Asian leader in the Far East timezone.  In 1994, Tony accepted a position with AIG in New York as the spot DEM/FFR trader, and a year later moved to Singapore with Soc Gen as he started a family.  A brief stint with Standard Chartered in 1996 was followed by a defining role at UBS (after the merger with Swiss Bank), eventually becoming Chief Dealer of a desk of 14 by 1999.  With the advent of the euro, Tony moved to Chase Singapore to trade JPY and back to Sydney to trade the $A.  In 2001, he moved to Tokyo with Credit Suisse and traded the euro and Swiss franc books.  After 2 years, the desk relocated to Singapore where he stayed until 2007 and returned home for family reasons, and ran WestLB's Asian spot operations.  In 2009, he went to Westpac to trade spot G10 currencies, and left in October 2011 to join David and create Hunter Burton Capital.

David and Tony have worked together at Societe Generale Sydney/Singapore (1990-1995) as well as Chase Singapore/Sydney (1999-2000).
