People News: Citigroup

Citi Building Sign

Citigroup emerging-market debt traders Ilia Poliakov and Steven Gooden have left the bank, according to people familiar with the matter.

Bloomberg News reports that Poliakov, who traded sovereign bonds and created structured notes linked to emerging-market securities, left the U.S. lender after a 14-year career, according to one of the people, who asked not to be identified because they’re not authorized to speak publicly. Gooden also traded emerging market debt.

Citigroup eliminated about 30 jobs in its global markets business starting in November, including Valentin Marinov, head of Europe G-10 foreign-exchange strategy in London.

In the meantime, Bloomberg also reports that Citigroup has hired Shreyas Bordia from Morgan Stanley as a managing director for its oil and gas team in the Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Bordia’s appointment is effective January 6th and he will be based in London, according to an internal memo obtained by Bloomberg News.
