Barclays has shuffled its FX management with the appointment of co-head of G10 FX trading, one an internal appointment, the other an external hire with a recent background in equities trading.
The bank says Torsten Schöneborn and Jerry Minier have taken the reins of the G10 FX trading business, both are based in London and report to Michael Lublinsky, global head of macro at the bank.
Schöneborn joins from BNP Paribas, where he worked for over two years as global co-head of electronic equities and portfolio trading. Prior to that he spent almost 10 years at Deutsche Bank, initially in the FX quant team, rising to head of e-FX spot quant trading, before shifting to global co-head of electronic equities, a role he held for two-and-a-half years.
Minier joined Barclays in 2020 from Goldman Sachs as global head of FX options trading, having worked in the US bank for over 16 years in its FX optoions business and is taking on an expanded role at Barclays.
“We have made great progress growing our global macro business and remain relentlessly focused on the areas where we can be consistently excellent,” says Lublinsky. “FX is one of our historic strengths and Torsten and Jerry’s expertise will help us execute our next set of priorities as we continue to invest and build best in class platforms and solutions for our clients.”
