UBS Hires SocGen Forex Salesman For U.K. Systematic Hedge Funds

May 24 2012 | 3:18am ET

UBS is continuing its buildup of its foreign exchange hedge fund sales team, this time with the addition of a Société Générale salesman.

The Swiss bank has added Ed Popham-Holloway to its London-based forex sales team. Popham-Holloway will focus on U.K. systematic hedge fund sales, one of three new appointments to UBS's forex team in London and Zürich.

Popham-Holloway was most recently a forex hedge fund salesman at SocGen, and previously worked at Lehman Brothers and Nomura Holdings. His hire follows that of former top Nomura hedge fund salesman Louis Curran, who was named co-head of institutional foreign exchange sales in Singapore for UBS this month.
