Tony Dalton/R.J. O’Brien

Based in New York, Tony Dalton is head of the Foreign Exchange (FX) Division at Chicago-based R.J. O’Brien & Associates, the oldest and largest independent futures brokerage and clearing firm in the U.S. Until accepting this role in July 2015, he had been a managing director in FX Prime Brokerage at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in New York.

“There is strong potential among hedge funds and other institutional investors who trade FX as an asset class,” Tony says of his new role at R.J. O’Brien. “It’s an honor for me to play a role in bridging those two worlds and leading the team to build the FX business to the next level.”

Tony joined Bank of America in 2000 and played a major role in successfully building FX Prime Brokerage businesses from the ground up, first at Barclays Bank in the mid 1990s, and subsequently at ABN AMRO in 1998. He began his career in financial services at MBIA. He is a member of the Bond Club of New York and is also a board member of the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Foundation.

Born in Dublin, Tony is a former member of the Irish Junior Olympic basketball team. He holds a B.A. in economics with a concentration in finance from Manhattanville College. He lives in New York with his wife, Jeanette, and their four children.
