Peter Antico, head of global G10 currency trading, has resigned from Bank of America Merrill Lynch in New York just months after being promoted to the role.
Antico was appointed head of global G10 currency trading in March this year and reported to Gerhard Seebacher, head of global rates, FX and structured credit trading. Antico was also head of Americas rates trading, a position that was assumed by Craig Reynolds when he joined BAML from Goldman Sachs in August (Squawkbox, 4 April).
Antico joined Merrill Lynch in 2007 from Deutsche Bank where he was head of North American core rates trading. In the 10 years he served at Deutsche, he held a variety of senior fixed income trading positions, including head of US dollar interest rates options trading.
It was not clear at time of going to press if anyone had been appointed to take over Antico’s role.
