CITI TRIGGER EXOTIC TRADING MOVEMENT – Robert Smolen, will become the new Head of Exotic Equity Derivatives Trading EMEA for Citigroup, to be based in London. Smolen moves from J.P. Morgan, where he previously managed JP’s Index Correlation and Hybrid Trading books. It has been suggested that Citi’s Global Hybrid team will report to Smolen, with the goal of bringing the hybrids and exotics trading teams closer together. Rob Pitcher and Cornelius Griffin will become Global Co-Heads of Exotic Equity Derivative Trading, who are replacing Emmanuel Girod, the previous head which left in April. #SpartanInternational
