People moves: Standard Chartered shows muscle with Allington hire
Euromoney has learnt that Chris Allington has left Goldman Sachs' prop desk for a senior FX role at Standard Chartered. Allington has been at Goldman for less than a year he resigned from Merrill Lynch, where he was co-head of G10 currency trading, in March last year.
Before that, he held a senior position at JPMorgan. This move reunites him with his former colleague at JPM, Richard Leighton, who is now global head of FX at StanChart.
