Mizuho Americas has unveiled David Moore as managing director, head of macro trading in New York. He will lead the macro trading business units, including secured financing/repo, rates cash and derivatives, and FX.
Moore reports to Mizuho Americas’ head of fixed income division Thomas Hartnett and is based in New York. He joins from BNP Paribas in New York, where, until March 2022, he was head of G10 Rates, having worked for the French bank for almost six years.

Moore has spent the bulk of his career at Morgan Stanley, working there for over 24 years, leaving the bank in January 2011 from his role as head of global Rates.
“Over the past several years, we have made transformative investments in our Macro product offering,” says Hartnett. “We are very excited for David to lead the next phase of growth in our products, trading capabilities, and activity with a diverse range of client segments. He brings a wealth of experience across products and a stellar reputation with investors that exemplifies our commitment to this key market segment.”
