FX people moves: Woo arrives
We can confirm that our old friend David Woo, formerly global head of FX strategy at Barclays Capital (FX people moves: Barclays Capital departures continue), has joined Bank of America Merrill Lynch as head of global rates and currencies research. Woo is responsible for forecasting the G10 currencies, as well as managing BAML’s regional interest rate research teams. He reports to Candace Browning, head of global research.
Before Barclays, Woo spent four years at Citi as head of local markets strategy for EMEA. He began his career as an economist at the International Monetary Fund in Washington DC and has a PhD in economics from Columbia University.
