FX people moves: Andrew Brown returns
It is an interesting time to join a Spanish bank but that hasn’t stopped Andrew Brown. The former global head of FX at HSBC is back in the FX market as global head of FX at Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA). The role is newly created and shows again the tendency for middle-tier banks to take FX more seriously. BBVA was 40th overall in last year’s Euromoney survey.
Brown left HSBC about two years ago to pursue other interests. Obviously the excitements of golf and triathlon training can’t compete with the thrills of FX.
