ON THE MOVE: HSBC Adds Tarrant; Liquidnet Expands

Traders Magazine Online News, January 30, 2018

John D'Antona Jr.

Joelle Tarrant, previously head of European market structure at RBC Capital Markets in London, has joined HSBC in the newly-created role of global head of market structure. This comes amid continued changes the bank is making its equities business under industry market veteran Robert Crane, who was hired in September to help transform equities trading at the UK bank. Nick Heather, HSBC's head of execution for European equities since July 2016, has left and his responsibilities have been taken over by Crane, according to people familiar with the matter — an expanded role that will give him ultimate oversight of the way the bank buys and sells shares on behalf of its institutional clients.

Relatedly, Nick Tranter, the former head of global head of equities client management at HSBC, who joined investment firm Gordian Knot in February 2017, has just arrived at Credit Agricole. Tranter will be a managing director on the financial institutions group (FIG) coverage team, working with asset managers and hedge funds. Tranter is an equities coverage veteran. He began his career at Morgan Stanley in 1996 and worked for BNP Paribas and Execution Noble before moving to HSBC. He left HSBC in September 2016 and joined Gordian Knot in February 2017.

Societe Generale’s head of program and electronic trading in the US has departed to join Liquidnet as the firm expands its global equities trading desk. Sunny Duggal has been appointed head of the trading desk and has more than 15 years experience in equities and ETFs, trading at major institutions including Goldman Sachs and RBS. Geoff Benarick, a sales trader from Citigroup with more than 20 years experience, has also joined the global trading desk at Liquidnet in New York. In Hong Kong, Liquidnet also appointed Enrica Leung, who has nine years trading experience at BNP Paribas, Macquarie and Barclays, as an execution trader.

Cboe Global Markets has hired options specialist Geralyn Endo from Credit Suisse. Endo now reports to David Gray, who is Chicago-based and runs Cboe's client services unit set up to manage the relationship management function options and futures groups. Her move comes after a brief spell at Credit Suisse Securities last year working for the bank's Advanced Execution Services (AES) platform covering US options, before which she worked for Bank of America Merrill Lynch between 2015-2017, focusing on developing the firm's Instinct Options electronic execution platform.
