Bank of America Merrill Lynch has hired a Goldman Sachs banker to lead its hedge fund sales effort for rates and currencies.
The addition of Vinit Sahni last month is part of a slew of hires for the bank’s Asia-Pacific derivatives sales and trading team. BofA recently nabbed UBS’ Rajesh Melwani as head of derivatives sales for the region and Goldman’s Romanos Daniels as head of exotics trading in Asia-Pacific.
Sahni joined the firm last month. In addition to his hedge fund sales responsibilities, he is also head of flow rates and currencies sales for Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa and global head of central bank sales for rates and currencies.
BofA’s derivatives hiring spree has also netted it new heads of China onshore rates and currencies trading, and head of Asia-Pacific G10 foreign exchange options trading.
