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.
