Dutch financial services group ING has made a raft of new hires to its equities business, including a number of appointments in its EMEA execution division.
“The latest additions to our team are focused in Russia and Turkey and are consistent with our strategy to strengthen our capabilities in these growing markets,” said Michael Kaplan, head of EMEA equities at ING. “Building out Russia and Turkey complements our equity franchise in Central Europe, and is consistent with both ING’s equity business and our broader commercial banking strategy.”
Todd Krummel joins ING in Moscow as head of Russian trading having previously worked at Deutsche Bank in Moscow, while former Tullett Prebon trader Adam Brinkley-Svanberg also joins ING in Moscow as a vice president of Russian equity trading.
In addition, Naser Nuredini, formerly at Unicredit CAI, has been hired as vice president of EMEA equity trading and Brian Wesneski joins ING in Moscow as vice president of Russian sales trading, having previously been at Unicredit Securities in Moscow where he covered domestic and international clients.
All trading and sales hires will report to Sadiq Razak, head of EMEA execution, based in London.
In addition to the trading appointments, ING also made a series of new hires in equity research covering metals and mining, telecoms, Russian utilities, Russian transport and Turkish non-financial companies. The new research hires will report to ING’s London-based head of EMEA research, Haluk Akdogan.
