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.

More details will follow tomorrow in the weeklyFiX.
