(In paragraph 1 of Aug. 18 story, adds missing word "spot"
after the WSJ corrected its story)
Aug 18 Citigroup Inc named Danny Wise as
its European head of G10 spot foreign exchange trading in
London, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people with
knowledge of the matter.
Wise was one of six foreign exchange employees at Credit
Suisse Group AG in London and New York who left the
bank in a cost-cutting drive in May.
Wise, Credit Suisse's head of FX spot trading in London and
the highest profile of the six, had joined the bank from
Barclays Plc in 2011.
He was also part of a group of chief dealers from banks in
London who met up to four times a year with senior Bank of
England officials to discuss the main issues and events
affecting the currency market.
Wise will start at Citi on Monday, the Journal said. (on.wsj.com/1qj8dcu)
