The head of fixed income market structure at JP Morgan has departed after eight years with the investment bank to take up a new role with BNY Mellon.

James Taylor has been appointed head of FX electronic markets sales at BNY Mellon as the markets business builds out its FX trading platform.

He has more than 20 years experience in electronic trading, having worked on several single-dealer platforms including Barclays BARX and Deutsche Bank’s Autobahn. 

Taylor will be based in London and will report to Oliver Martines, global co-head of FX sales at BNY Mellon.

He is the latest to join BNY Mellon’s markets business after the investment bank hired Jeff Leal from UniCredit, where he was global head of eFX.

Leal assumed the position of global head of eFX at BNY Mellon Markets in January this year.
