Robert McTamaney, the London-based co-head of global foreign exchange at Goldman Sachs, is relocating to Tokyo to jointly run the bank’s pan-Asian securities business with Katsunori Sago.
He will start his new role at the beginning of next year, a spokesperson confirms, and will report to Mike Evans, Tom Montag and Michael Sherwood who head global securities.
A decision on McTamaney’s replacement in FX has not been announced yet, the spokesperson adds.
McTamaney joined the bank in FX options in New York in 1996 before moving to Tokyo a year later to run the FX options business in Asia. In 2000, he moved to London to manage FX options globally before being appointed co-head of global FX with Greg Tebee in 2005. Tebee is understood to have taken sole responsibility for FX pending an announcement of McTamaney’s replacement.
