FX people moves: Coupland calls it a day, Henrikson steps up

Another glittering career draws to a close. Word has reached theweeklyFiX that Nigel Coupland, head of FX and wholesale funding at Lloyds, will shortly retire.

Coupland started out at Midland and, with brief periods at Banque Indosuez, New York, and Tullet and Tokyo in London, became Midland’s head of specialized trading and research at the age of 29. By the time of Midland’s takeover by HSBC, Coupland was the London head of FX trading. Rather than throw in his lot with the combined organisation, he decided to return to Tullets to run its financial futures operation. Two years there were followed by a spell as a management consultant at Price Waterhouse before Coupland returned to banking as head of FX trading at WestLB in 1996.

In 1999 Coupland moved to Halifax plc and, together with Kelvin Jouhar, oversaw FX operations during the merger with Bank of Scotland. In 2002 Coupland became head of treasury sales at HBoS, and after the bank’s takeover by Lloyds in early 2009 went back to the trading side as head of FX.

Coupland will hit the big Hawaii (50) in December and has obviously decided his time is better spent with his wife and four sons.
