Two traders leave Citi for the buy-side
We are in the middle of the holiday season, but that is not preventing some traders from leaving investment banks for jobs on the buyer’s side. Citi suffered at least two of these defections.
In London, Barney Singer left Citi’s electronic currency trading office for Brevan Howard. And in New York, Andrew Logan left for Millennium.
The singer had been with Citi for six years according to his LinkedIn profile. He joined Nomura, where he was responsible for EFX trading in 2014.
Logan had been with Citi for four years according to his registration with FINRA.
Citi did not immediately respond to a request to comment on the releases.
Brevan Howard recruited heavily in New York and London. He tripled his London workspace at 82 Baker Street in May 2021 and hired people like macro analyst Marcin Polak from Balyasny and portfolio managers Nick Dawson from Rokos and Richard Wilson from JB Drax Honore.
Millennium has also been busy recruiting staff. Markus Scheufler, a recently promoted managing director of Deutsche Bank, joined in July. Other recent Millenium hires include Xinzhuo Huang, a Morgan Stanley portfolio strategist, and Alfio Vidal Amián, a Goldman credit trader (based in Switzerland).
