Reuters has hired Moneyline Telerate chief executive and founder Jon Robson as its new global head of fixed income, starting in March. New York-based Robson replaces Bill Goldy, who will move to another senior position within the firm after Robson settles into his new role. The appointment is part of a strengthening of Reuters’ fixed-income business, said a Reuters spokesperson in London, and follows the addition of Deutsche Bank’s Web Autobahn bond trading platform on Reuters’ 3000 Xtra terminals earlier this month.

David Walsh, chairman of Moneyline Telerate and a partner at One Equity Partners (OEP), the venture capital firm that owns a substantial shareholding in Moneyline Telerate, takes over from Robson as Moneyline’s chief executive.
