RBS global FX strategy head leaves bank
The head of global FX strategy at RBS has left his position after two years of working at the bank.
Robert Sinche, 60, is no longer employed at RBS and it was not clear on Monday if he has taken a position working elsewhere. Sinche, who reported to RBS global banking and markets head of research David Simmonds, is a highly experienced FX markets professional.
In 1998, Sinche joined Citi after seven years as head of global fixed income at Alliance Capital Management, which he left in 1995.
In 2004, he left his position as the global head of currency strategy for Citi to join Bank of America, where he served until April 2009 as head of strategy for global FX, rates and commodities.
Sinche joined RBS in September 2010 after working for 10 months previous as chief strategist for Lily Pond Capital Management.
He was based in RBS’s Stamford, Connecticut, offices.
Sinche’s departure follows that of RBS’ global head of emerging market research Timothy Ash, who left the bank in July for a destination unknown.
Ash joined RBS in 2008 from Bear Stearns and was based in London. At RBS, he headed research for Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa before moving into his last role at the bank as global head of emerging market research.
