People moves: Mo hires in StanChart NY
Standard Chartered has hired Felipe De Freitas as head trader of Latin American FX options and John Munley as a senior G10 trader. Both will be based in New York and report to Mo Grimeh, who became the bank’s head of trading and deputy head of global markets, Americas, at the end of January. It’s good to see that De Freitas, who was once touted as the most likely replacement for Ian Botham in the English cricket team, but was more recently at Credit Suisse, has so successfully forged an alternative career. Munley was at Royal Bank of Scotland.
