WestLB merges London-Dusseldorf spot FX desks


DUSSELDORF -- WestLB’s new combined spot FX desk in Dusseldorf starts business today (November 12), following the transfer of the bank’s London spot FX business.

As part of the move, former London foreign exchange trading head Richard Hill has moved to Dusseldorf, where he takes a new job as global head of spot FX.

There, he takes charge of a team of four other spot FX traders. Three were already based in Dusseldorf, while the fourth, Sinan Keki also transferred from London.
