JP Morgan has created a markets execution team, which will focus on providing clients with electronic distribution of macro (including futures and options and Neovest) markets products across multi-channels.
The new team will be jointly led by Richard James, who has moved from his role as head of currencies and emerging markets execution services, and Peter Ward, who was previously head of futures and options execution services. Both men will report to David Hudson, JP Morgan's head of markets execution.
Debra Herschmann has joined JP Morgan as head of corporate and investment bank user experience.
She joins from Goldman Sachs, where she established and led the global user experience design practice responsible for delivering commercial and highly usable client-facing, front office, and enterprise products.
Prior to that, Herschmann was at Lehman Brothers where she was responsible for UX delivery of LehmanLive and Point.
At JP Morgan, Herschmann will be responsible for ensuring clients get a consistent experience on the bank’s platforms across asset classes, and as markets change or open up.
