FX people moves: Mayer makes a move
theweeklyFiX hears that Andy Mayer has left Morgan Stanley. Mayer is something of a veteran at the less liquid end of the currency options spectrum, having occupied senior roles in both exotics and emerging markets. With an MSc from Edinburgh University, he started his career in EM at RBS, then traded exotics at Commerzbank, before moving to Morgan Stanley to trade EM under Senad Prusac.
Mayer’s destination is unknown. The best we’ve been able to dig up doesn’t narrow it down: “a European bank somewhere”.
Morgan Stanley did not confirm Mayer’s departure.
