BAML LOSING EQUITY DERIV SALES BATTLE – Guillaume Arnaud, formerly Bank of America’s Head of Equity Solutions Sales and Structuring for Europe, Middle East and Africa, has returned to Societe Generale where he had previously worked 9 years before joining BoA late in 2015. Arnaud has joined his former firm as the Head of Quantitative Investment Strategies. Bank of America have recently suffered from having lost several employees from their equity derivatives team, among the names: Alexander Askling (Head of Nordic Equity Derivatives Sales), Whitfield Hines (Head of EMEA Equity Derivatives Flow Sales) and Selma SEKKAT (Head of French Equity Derivatives Sales). These departures do not come as a surprise when banks like Goldman Sachs want to compete for equity derivatives talent. #SpartanInternational
