People moves: Standard Chartered makes senior option hire
Long-term ABN Amro employee Jerome Cohen has left the bank to join Standard Chartered.
Cohen, who was with the Dutch bank for 13 years and ran its FX exotics and G11, will look after Standard Chartered’s complex FX risk team, based in Singapore. He will report directly to Richard Leighton, the bank’s global head of FX.
“This is a significant hire for Standard Chartered as we look to expand our product range to our clients and consolidate our position as a top-tier, global FX option player. Jerome is a proven professional who brings a wealth of experience to the bank – he built ABN’s exotic options business and will be focused on expanding our footprint in new products, correlation risk and long-dated FX options in G10 and emerging market currencies,” says Leighton.
