Simon Jones has been appointed head of credit markets trading for EMEA, in addition to his current role as head of global spread products (GSP) financing and securitisation for the region.

Jones will also take on the associated senior manager responsibilities following last week’s appointment of Amit Raja as EMEA head of markets.

In a memo, seen by The DESK, Micky Bhatia, head of global spread products at Citi, wrote, “Simon will lead the combined GSP franchise in EMEA, building upon Amit’s work over the past five years in developing a top-tier credit trading business. Simon will be responsible for helping develop a strategy to maintain and extend our position, with continued emphasis on strong risk management and controls.”

“Simon has been EMEA head of GSP Financing and Securitisation since 2017. Prior to that, he ran the structured product trading desk. He joined Citi in 2004 and has held several leadership positions in securitised markets trading, including co-head of the special situations trading group,” he continued.
