Mr. Haughey has worked in the securities industry for over 20 years. Prior to joining Marist he led a team in Citigroup's Special Situations Group, where he was responsible for structuring esoteric asset-backed securities, including deals backed by mutual fund fee, timeshare, energy, movie, auto and mortgage collateral.

At Citi, he created the Hedged Mutual Fund Fee Trust Security, which pioneered the embedding of equity and interest rate hedges that succeeded in mitigating mutual fund market risk; the first of its kind in this asset class and the debut of wrapped deals. He risk‐managed a billion‐dollar multi‐asset class portfolio, and developed and implemented a Mark to Model (MTM)/VAR pricing/risk reporting system. In addition to structuring he was also responsible for placing paper, and sold $3+ billion (nominal face) of equity‐linked/hedged ABS securities to institutional investors (Pension Funds, Insurance Companies and Hedge Funds) worldwide and closed $1 billion in placements marketed to clients in Japan.

Prior to joining Citigroup he worked at a variety of firms, including Fitch Ratings, where he rated Managed Bond Funds, and Ryan Labs, where he worked in portfolio optimization and performance attribution. He currently provides consulting services to credit rating agencies evaluating exotic structured finance transactions. 

Mr. Haughey is the co-author of a recent title from Wiley entitled Hedging Market Exposures. Educated at University College Dublin, in Ireland, Mr. Haughey holds B.Sc. and MBS degrees and holds the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), Financial Risk Manager (FRM) and Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) designations.

At Marist he built a trading floor to bring hands-on, “real world” experience to the business curriculum, and launched and oversees the Greystone Equity and Fixed Income funds, Marist's student-managed investments funds.
