Among a raft of changes at the top of its Americas business, BNP Paribas has named Kunal Maini as co-head of global macro – Americas.
The banks says he will support its effort to strengthen its global macro business featuring a digital offering and expertise across Rates, FX and commodities. In addition, he will be responsible for globalising BNP’s US Rates franchise by developing stronger client connectivity and product innovation.
Maini joins from Morgan Stanley, where he was global head of government bond, inflation and e-trading.
The appointment is one of several made by BNP, John Hanisch has been appointed co-head of secondary credit Americas and global head of securitized products trading, and Charlie Shah has been named head of IG & CDS trading Americas. Additionally, Bo Bazylevsky is appointed head of LatAm flow credit trading and Michael Rietbrock is the new head of research within the bank’s global equities business.
Elsewhere, Robert McDonald is appointed head of strategic equity solutions and equity-linked origination and Nadim Siddique is appointed head of strategic equity derivatives trading.
“There is an enormous opportunity to develop our client relationships in the Americas, not only across our global markets platform, but also across our entire corporate and institutional banking division,” says John Gallo, head of global markets Americas at BNP Paribas. “We are proud to welcome our new colleagues who represent our commitment to strengthen our client offering and our ambition to be the leading European bank globally.”
