London-based investment banking group Execution Noble has hired Neil Bond to boost its portfolio and electronic trading team.
Bond was most recently at J.P. Morgan Cazenove, where he was a vice president in the bank's sales and algorithmic trading division. His exit closely follows the departure of Scott Bradley, who left the J.P. Morgan's Electronic Client Solutions division at the end of July.
Bond has also worked in the portfolio and algorithmic trading businesses at agency broker Sanford C. Bernstein and now-defunct investment bank Bear Stearns. He was also head of portfolio trading at ITG Europe between 1997 and 2005.
At Execution Noble, Bond will report to Tony Nash, head of execution services.
