Japan-based investment bank Nomura has snapped up an electronic trading head from J.P. Morgan to join its London office.
According to sources close to the situation, Scott Bradley, previously head of sales EMEA for J.P Morgan's Electronic Client Solutions division, will join Nomura in September.
Bradley will join Nomura's electronic sales trading team, working with Adam Toms, Nomura's head of market access group and Andrew Bowley, head of electronic trading product management.
Prior to working at J.P. Morgan, Bradley also worked for the algorithmic trading teams at Goldman Sachs and investment bank Bear Stearns, which was bought by J.P. Morgan in 2008. Bradley also held a position in the program and hedge fund sales trading division at agency brokerage and trading technology company ITG.
Both Bradley and Nomura were unavailable for comment.
