FX people moves: Société Générale further expands its FX and EM strategy teams
Just six months after recruiting Kit Juckes and Benoit Anne as respectively heads of FX strategy and EM strategy Société Générale Cross Asset Research has further strengthened its FX and emerging markets strategy teams.
Sébastien Galy, as a senior FX strategist, and Michael Sneyd, FX strategist, have joined the bank. They will be based in London, reporting to Juckes. Galy was previously at BNP Paribas in New York where he was a senior FX strategist, and before that he worked in FX strategy with Dresdner Kleinwort in London and UBS in Zurich. Sneyd was previously at Barclays Wealth, where he worked as an FX economist; before that he worked at Lehman Brothers in London.
Guillaume Salomon has joined the global emerging markets strategy team as a senior EM fixed-income and FX strategist. He reports to Anne. Guillaume was previously at TD Securities, where he was focused on emerging markets in Europe and Latin America and before that was an EM strategist at UBS.
In last year’s Euromoney survey Société Générale was sixth and fourth equal respectively in G10 research and EM research. But the bank wants to do even better. It says it wants to build “world class teams across asset classes in order to provide the best possible advice and analysis for its client base”.
