In 2003 he became Co-Head of the desk and was jointly responsible for the transformation of the department into the Principal Strategies Group, the proprietary trading unit within the Equities Division. After the acquisition of ABN AMRO by the consortium, Wilrik worked for Royal Bank of Scotland in the same capacity until the inception of Mint Tower Capital Management in 2010.
