RBC names former NatWest Markets alumnus as managing director of UK flow rates sales

Incoming MD brings over 30 years’ experience to the role, having held positions at NatWest Markets, Nomura, Citi, Morgan Stanley and BlackRock.

RBC has appointed Guy Chalkley as managing director, UK flow rates sales, according to an internal memo seen by The TRADE.

Chalkley brings more than three decades worth of financial services to the role, in both portfolio management and rates sales.

Before joining RBC, Chalkley spent 11 years at NatWest Markets. He most recently served as managing director in its institutional rates sales business, overseeing key strategic relationships and distributing global rates products.  

Prior to NatWest Markets, Chalkley held similar positions at Nomura, Citi and Morgan Stanley.

Elsewhere in his career, Chalkley served as a European government bond, inflation and absolute return fund manager at BlackRock. 

“Working closely with global trading, strategy and sales partners, Guy will be a key driver in shaping and executing RBC’s ambition to grow relevance and market share with its UK real money and European flow rates client base, collaborating closely with colleagues in the region to critically deepen and expand relationships with existing and prospective clients,” said RBC in a note seen by The TRADE announcing Chalkley’s appointment.

The move follows the addition of Giles Gleave and Mike Heraty who were appointed as managing directors at RBC Capital Markets in July.

Heraty took on the role of head of US equity solutions and structured product sales, while Gleave was appointed head of European equity solutions.
