FX people moves: Citi moves again in currency strategy
Citi has hired Osamu Takashima as a currency strategist at its Tokyo office. The bank says the appointment highlights its commitment to its expanding FX franchise in Japan.
Bapi Maitra, Citi's head of FX in Tokyo, says: “This appointment marks a watershed in the development of our business. It signals to our clients and competitors our unwavering commitment to be the best in the business. Takashima-san commands respect in the industry and is a huge hire for us. We are delighted that he is joining Citi.”
Takashima was previously at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, which he joined back in 1992, where he was chief currency strategist for its global markets division.
It looks like Steve Englander is moving fast in his new role as Citi’s global head of G10 strategy (FX people moves: No little Englander for Citi) – he starts today (April 1).
