In his new role at RBC, Mr. Persson will help direct the group’s FX sales division – he will be based out of London, following several similar roles with a distinctly European focus, all relegated to FX.

Prior to joining RBC, Mr. Persson worked at several leading financial institutions, including HSBC, Barclays Capital, and Nomura, dating back to 2007. In these roles, his area of focus extended principally to Northern Europe, specifically in the realm of FX sales.
The addition of Mr. Persson is the first noteworthy move at RBC since May, when the RBC Capital Markets landed longtime financial services executive, Matt Fennessy as its Director of FX Sales. Mr. Fennessy joined RBC Capital Markets from Citi, having worked there for over a decade across a number of senior level roles during his time with the lender.
RBC Royal Bank, also known as the RBC Financial Group, is the largest financial institution in Canada. Headquartered in Toronto, the banking group offers financial services across a multitude of asset classes, including equities, futures and FX.
