Ins and outs at Standard Chartered in options

Standard Chartered, which has one of the best franchises in FX, has made a couple of hires as it looks to build on what the rumour mill suggests was a bumper year in 2006.

Borthwick, who will start on Monday (December 4), was formerly at Merrill Lynch as a director in strategic trading. Elsewhere, Justin Holland joins the bank from ANZ. Holland, who was in the process of moving back to Melbourne from London, will be based in Singapore and run Stan Chart’s large commonwealth book.
