EUROPE/UK - HSBC has appointed Ferruccio Ferrara as European head of FX derivative marketing.
He will join the global FX derivatives team within HSBC’s corporate, investment banking and markets unit today and will be based in London.
Ferrara brings some fifteen years experience to HSBC, most recently working in Deutsche Bank’s global corporate finance division.
Martyn Brush, HSBC’s global head of FX derivatives, said: “The combination of [Ferrara’s] appointment and that of Chris McHugh, who joined us earlier this month, strengthens the platform from which HSBC can offer superior risk management advice and high level structuring services to both corporate and institutional clients. This appointment is the second of several anticipated in our expanding FX derivatives business.”
