BNY Mellon has appointed James Taylor as Head of FX Electronic Markets Sales as it looks to build out its FX platform to meet the ongoing needs of its global clients.
Taylor has almost 20 years’ experience in electronic trading, working on some of the leading single-dealer platforms, including Barclays’ BARX and Deutsche Bank’s Autobahn. He joins the bank from JP Morgan, where he spent eight years in a variety of interest rate and FX roles, serving most recently as Head of Fixed Income Market Structure.
Taylor is based in London and reports to Oliver Martines.
His appointment is the latest step in Markets’ FX transformation following the hire of Jeff Leal as Global Head of Electronic Markets for FX earlier this year.
