FX people moves: Standard Chartered makes another institutional sales hire
Standard Chartered has hired Ramesh Swamy to the newly created role of head of financial institutions sales for south and southeast Asia. Based in Singapore, Swamy is responsible for sales across all financial institutions for FX, rates and commodities.
Swamy reports jointly to David Arnold, regional head of financial markets sales for southeast Asia, and to Adrian Walkling, global head of financial institutions sales.
Arnold says: “The southeast Asia business for Standard Chartered has grown enormously in the last few years. This is due to a combination of market-leading local market expertise and our holistic approach to client relationship management.”
Walkling adds: “South and southeast Asia are important regions in Standard Chartered’s footprint. As such, we are looking forward to Ramesh’s experience and expertise in helping elevate our already strong financial institution client business to greater heights.”
Swamy comes from JPMorgan, where he was head of bank sales for Hong Kong and Singapore and FX product head for Asia-Pacific.
