JP Morgan hires BGC product expert to drive FICC digital sales 

Former BGC Partners executive joins JP Morgan in the FICC division as vice president for digital markets after a decade with the interdealer broker.

JP Morgan has hired a product strategy executive from interdealer broker BGC Partners to drive digital product sales within its fixed income, currencies and commodities (FICC) business. 

Daniel Olagunju joins the US investment bank as vice president for digital markets in the FICC division after more than ten years with BGC Partners and its electronic trading platform, Fenics. A spokesperson at JP Morgan confirmed the new hire.

Olagunju most recently worked in electronic trading product strategy for rates swaps and FX in Singapore as an eSales manager for the Asia Pacific region at Fenics. He worked closely with the sell-side to drive execution on the platform.

Prior to that, Olagunju spent more than nine years overseeing operations for all desks at BGC, including credit, FX, rates, commodities and bonds. He was heavily involved in implementing electronic trading across the broker’s brands with in-house trading technology.

Amid a continued focus on digital at JP Morgan, the bank appointed former head of digital product development and innovation at State Street, Pinar Emirdag, to lead its new digital operations division.

The digital operations division brought together several of JP Morgan’s digital operations support teams, including FICC electronic client services, markets client services, operations client relationship management, and research operations.
