Curran departs hedge fund FX sales head role at Nomura
Louis Curran, managing director and co-head of hedge fund foreign exchange sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (Emea) at Nomura, has left the bank.
Curran was based in London and reported locally to Fabrizio Russo, head of FX sales for EMEA. He has worked previously at Citi and Merrill Lynch, and shared the co-head role at Nomura with Mark Rossi, who is understood to have been recently promoted to the role.
Rossi first joined Nomura in April 2010 as an executive director in hedge fund sales. He joined from hedge fund Pharo Management, and had also worked at Bank of America and Goldman Sachs.
Meanwhile, Nomura has also parted company with Peter Larsson, executive director for northern European FX sales. Larsson was also based in London and reported to Mathijs Peeters, managing director for FX sales in northern Europe. Prior to joining Nomura in 2010, Larsson had worked at Royal Bank of Scotland and Morgan Stanley.
Elsewhere, Nomura has made a number of internal promotions in its fixed-income and macro-products businesses. Takashi Abiko becomes head of fixed-income sales for Asia-Pacific; Yutaka Nakajima becomes head of fixed-income trading for Japan and Australia; Harsh Shah becomes global head of structured sales; Chris Fleming becomes global head of macro sales; and Cactus Raazi becomes global head of spread-product sales.
Nomura declined to comment.
