Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) has shifted its sales personnel, installing veteran Jeroen Rombouts as its co-Head of Corporate Derivatives for EMEA. The move is designed to help drive and foster Goldman’s global FX business, part of a broader shift by the lender in the FX space.
Mr. Rombouts is Goldman’s acting Head of FX sales for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). His new role will see him work alongside co-head Alessandro Dusi as a co-head of Corporate Derivatives for EMEA. He has been involved with Goldman Sachs for several years now, also being appointed as to partner in 2012.

In this capacity he will be reporting to Simone Verri, Goldman’s Head of Debt Capital Markets (DCM) and Structured Finance in Europe. As its co-Head of Corporate Derivatives in EMEA, Mr. Rombouts will play a central role in one of the lender’s most diverse segments, which constitutes every asset class of its financing suite, per an FXWeek report.
Mr. Rombouts originally joined Goldman back in 2001 – the past sixteen years has seen him maintain multiple senior roles at the group, including an emphasis most recently on EMEA fixed-income. His tenure has also seen him focus on currencies and commodities emerging markets sales and Asia FX sales.
His skill set will combine with that of Mr. Dusi, who is already responsible for equity and fixed income derivative business with corporate clients in the EMEA region. Additionally, there will be multiple members of Goldman’s FX team shifting focus from securities to the newly revamped financing group.
In particular, Goldman’s corporate derivatives business sits within the financing sphere, including interest rate, FX, commodities, and equity risk management activities.
