Merrill nabs Goldman dealers

Three of them -- directors Andrea Anselmetti and Luca Pietrangeli and associate director Ernesto Mercadente -- join the bank to expand corporate risk management and foreign exchange in Italy. Roberto Centeno joins the bank as a director with responsibility for Iberia.

The corporate risk management group provides advice and execution for corporate clients, covering all risk management issues, including foreign exchange, interest rate risk and credit risk. All four will report to Patrick Bauné, co-head of Merrill Lynch’s global foreign exchange issuer client group, and Damian Chunilal, head of the European, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) issuer client group, when they start work at Merrill in the next two weeks.

Service enhancement

Harry Lengsfield, head of EMEA Debt Markets and chief operating officer of Global Debt Markets, said the bank is seeking to grow its debt business within EMEA and to enhance the service provided to issuer clients across FX and corporate risk management products.

These four dealers are among a spate of staff losses from Goldman Sachs over the past few weeks (see related story, this issue). A spokesperson at Goldman said that despite the departures of three Italian FX sales dealers, the bank retains at least four members of that team in London.
