People moves: Barclays appoints head of FX IT
Barclays Capital has hired Lakh Patra as its head of FX IT. He reports to Sameer Jain, the bank's head of FX, fixed income, exotics and vanilla options and derivative counterparty risk management IT. Jain's biggest challenge so far has been to fit his title on a normal-sized business card. Patra joins Barclays from Bank of America Merrill Lynch, where he was global head of rates and FX technology.
