Lloyds TSB Corporate Markets last week named Charlie Diebel as head of market strategy, a newly created position, and said it hired Adrian Schmidt as an FX strategist and Tim McCullough as technical strategist.
Diebel will lead a team responsible for generating daily market analysis and insights as well as more detailed and in-depth views on fixed income, rates and currencies. He reports to Trevor Williams, chief economist
Diebel has over 20 years of financial markets experience and joins from Nomura where he was head of rates strategy. Before Nomura, he worked at Socit Gnrale and the Royal Bank of Scotland as a fixed income and interest rate strategist.
Joining Diebel’s team are Schmidt and McCullough. Schmidt has over 20 years’ experience in trading and analysing the currency markets, most recently at currency fund C-view, and previously at the Royal Bank of Scotland and Chase.
McCullough also has over two decades of FX and rates experience acquired at BNP Paribas, West LB and UBS.
Williams says: “Charlie and his team have a combined wealth of experience covering rates and currencies that will be invaluable to our clients. Developing our capabilities to produce leading analysis and insights into financial markets is an essential part of servicing the needs of our corporate and financial institutions clients.”
