John Serocold has left his position as managing director, equities, at sell-side trade body the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) to join the International Capital Markets Association, a group that promotes efficiency in financial markets. He will start his new role on 17 January.
Serocold will take up the post of senior regulatory policy advisor, where he will be responsible for the secondary markets section of the regulatory policy team. At AFME he advocated market transparency and was a driving force behind an initiative through which six sell-side firms published the trading data from their crossing networks on a daily basis.
He has been replaced by Christian Krohn in his former role at AFME. Prior to this Krohn had been a director in the association's post-trade division.
