Rabobank Hires Head For Beefed-Up Derivatives Desk

Nov 16 2006 | 12:30pm ET

Rabobank International has named Arnaud Desombre to head its equity derivatives trading business in New York.

The Americas desk launched earlier this year to service hedge fund and asset management clients, among others. The group is also expanding Rabobank’s retail equity derivatives product suite.

“The addition of Arnaud gives us an immediate and highly-skilled equity derivatives trading capability in the Americas, and complements our established equity derivatives business in Europe and Asia,” Rabobank head of global financial markets Bill Mansfield said.

Desombre has worked as an independent commodities and futures trader for the past year. Prior to that, he headed U.S. stock options trading for BNP Paribas, and worked as hedge of North American stock options trading for Société Générale.
