Forex Magnates has learned that Beat Nussbaumer, the Managing Director and Global Head of FX Spot at Commerzbank AG, has parted ways with the bank.
This is the second such departure of a key head at Commerzbank AG in as many months, following the abrupt departure of Stefan Hamberger, Head of Electronic Sales for fixed income and currencies (Fic), after nearly a decade at the bank.
In January it was reported that, as part of an internal restructuring, the bank is transferring up to 70 positions from London to Frankfurt. This move allows Commerzbank to consolidate its risk management capability and brings its traders closer to the bank’s platforms in the Frankfurt headquarters.
