People moves: More hires at BoA
News of its demise as a player in FX appears to have been premature. Following on from a series of hires announced last week, Bank of America has just confirmed another raft of senior appointments in its FX business. Glenn Edelson joins from Bear Stearns as managing director and head of emerging markets sales in New York; Peter Hart joins in London from ABN Amro as a principal in FX sales; Joel Holmes joins the bank’s G10 spot desk in New York from Lehman Brothers; Vanessa Holtz-Clouard has left ABN Amro to join as principal and head of London options trading; Daniel Sigler, who comes from Bear Stearns as a principal and senior emerging markets trader, will look after the South African rand, Turkish lira, Argentine peso, Colombian peso and Peruvian sol books. Finally Simon Williams has joined the real money sales team in London from Bear Stearns.
